Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will meet with the Group of 20 (G-20) finance ministers in Sydney, Australia, this weekend where discussions will focus on supporting stronger economic growth, increasing employment and developing growth strategies.

Ministers will also discuss ways to improve the long-term investment climate of G-20 countries, with a particular focus on infrastructure investments and making reforms to the international tax system.

In addition, they will continue their work toward important reforms in the areas of financial regulation and International Monetary Fund governance.

Minister Flaherty will promote the need to balance job creation and economic growth with the need to reduce debts and deficits, as Canada is doing with its Economic Action Plan.
