Archived - Minister Oliver Promotes Jobs and Growth at G-20, IMF and World Bank Group Meetings

October 9, 2014 – Washington, D.C. – Department of Finance

Finance Minister Joe Oliver will attend the Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Group this week in Washington D.C., where he will also meet with his Group of 20 (G-20) Minister of Finance colleagues.

The meetings will focus on the state of the global economy as well as strategic priorities for the IMF and World Bank Group. G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors will discuss deliverables ahead of the G-20 Leaders Summit in Brisbane next month, including measures to support greater investment in infrastructure, particularly by the private sector.

Minister Oliver will encourage countries to follow Canada’s example of responsible fiscal management, which will result in a return to balanced budgets in 2015, and to implement structural measures that strengthen the economy and create jobs, as outlined in the G-20 growth strategies. Canada has weathered the global economic crisis better than most countries and stands out among the G-20 as an international economic success story and an attractive partner for trade and investment.
