* Canada’s Global Economic Leadership: A Report to Canadians (in attachment)

________________________________

NEW YORK – Canada is leading the world in the global economic recovery, said the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, who is in New York today to release a report charting Canada’s strong record of growth, open trade and financial sector performance as compared to other industrialized nations.

To complement Minister Flaherty’s event, the Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, and the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of Natural Resources, are also releasing the same report in London, UK and in Beijing, China today.

“Wherever I travel—at home and abroad—Canada’s economic leadership is evident,” said Minister Flaherty. “We’re open for business, creating more and better jobs today and for the future. As Canada prepares to host the world at the G-8 and G-20 summits, we have a great economic story to tell, and we can capitalize on it.”

Minister Flaherty said the document, Canada’s Global Economic Leadership: A Report to Canadians, demonstrates Canada is far advanced on the key priorities facing G-20 leaders, including fiscal consolidation, trade liberalization and financial sector reform.

The report notes that:

* The decline in output in Canada during the recession was the smallest of G-7 countries.
* Canada is the only G-7 country to have virtually recouped the loss in output during the recession.
* Canada is the only G-7 country to record a year-over-year increase in employment in March 2010.

“Continuing to emerge from the global recession, Canada showed the strongest economic growth in 10 years in the first quarter,” said Minister Flaherty. “Our Government has responded to the recession with the right policies to stimulate the economy and create jobs. We have lowered taxes, invested in infrastructure and training, and boosted support for workers and families.”

Minister Flaherty noted that Canada has kept its economy open for investment from all around the world, resisting protectionism and taking down barriers to trade.

At the same time, Canada has played a leadership role in global discussions on ways to prevent a future crisis with the G-8, G-20 and other international organizations.

As host of the G-20 Leaders’ Summit, Canada’s priority is to ensure all G-20 countries work together to put their fiscal positions on a sustainable track, strengthen the global financial system and pursue policies that foster strong, sustained and balanced growth for all countries.

“One of the key lessons of the global recession and financial crisis is that sound macroeconomic and financial policies matter. Our financial system has served as a model for reforms, and our fiscal situation is the envy of countries facing crippling deficits,” he added.

Senior government ministers are communicating Canada’s economic message to G‑20 governments, business leaders and investors around the world.

“Canada plays an important leadership role on the world stage,” said Minister Kenney in London. “We are keeping our fiscal house in order with a three-point plan to ensure we return to balanced budgets in a timely manner. Financial markets around the world are sending clear signals that public debt in many countries is far too high. I am proud to say that Canada’s federal deficit will be virtually eliminated by 2014.”

In Beijing, Minister Paradis noted that Canada is an ideal investment destination. “Canada is leading the way toward sustainable prosperity by reducing taxes and opening doors to foreign investment and trade,” he said. He pointed out that according to the Economist Intelligence Unit, Canada will be the number one place to do business in the G-7 for the next five years.

“This year, Canada will have an overall tax rate on new business investment that is the lowest in the G-7. Canada is also the first G-20 member to become a tariff-free zone for industrial manufacturers,” Minister Flaherty said. “This will enhance Canadian competitiveness and demonstrates Canadian leadership in support of global trade liberalization.”






加拿大高级内阁部长在三个不同大陆强调加拿大的全球经济领导地位


* 报告摘要:加拿大的全球经济领导地位 (见附件)

________________________________

6月21日,加拿大财政部长吉姆·弗拉赫蒂(Jim Flaherty)在纽约指出,加拿大在全球经济复苏方面领先于世界。他今天在纽约发表的一份报告中,阐明了与其他工业化国家相比,加拿大强劲的增长记录、开放的贸易和金融部门绩效。

为配合弗拉赫蒂部长的报告,加拿大公民、移民和多元文化部长杰森·肯尼(Jason Kenney)以及自然资源部长克里斯琴·柏拉迪(Christian Paradis)今天分别在英国伦敦和中国北京发表了同样的报告。

“我所到之处——无论在国内还是国外——加拿大的经济领导地位是显而易见的,” 弗拉赫蒂部长说,“我们开放的经营,为今天和未来创造更多更好的就业机会。正当加拿大准备举办八国集团峰会和二十国集团峰会时,我们将分享伟大的经济成功经验,并且我们将利用这一经验。”

弗拉赫蒂部长说,《加拿大的全球经济领导地位:对加拿大人民的报告》这份文件,表明在二十国集团领导人的工作重点方面,其中包括财政整顿、贸易自由化和金融部门改革,加拿大远比他们先进。

该报告指出:

* 在经济衰退期间,加拿大的产值下降是七国集团中最少的。
* 加拿大是唯一一个实际上已收回在经济衰退期间产值损失的七国集团国家。
* 加拿大是唯一一个在2010年3月就业人数比去年同期增加的七国集团国家。

“加拿大继续从全球经济衰退中走出来,在第一季度显示了十年来最强劲的经济增长。”弗拉赫蒂部长说,“我们的政府以正确的政策应对经济衰退,刺激经济增长并创造就业机会。我们已降低税收,投资基础设施和培训,并加强了对工人和家庭的支持。”

弗拉赫蒂部长指出,加拿大一直保持其经济开放,欢迎世界各地的投资,抵制保护主义,并拆除贸易壁垒。

与此同时,加拿大在八国集团、二十国集团和其他国际组织中就如何防止未来危机的全球讨论中,发挥了领导作用。

作为二十国集团领导人峰会的主办国,加拿大的重点是确保所有二十国集团国家共同努力,将自国的财政状况纳入可持续发展的轨道,加强全球金融体系,并推行政策以促进所有国家的经济强劲、持续和平衡增长。

“全球经济衰退和金融危机的主要教训之一,是健全的宏观经济和金融政策非常重要。我们的金融体系已成为一种改革模范,我们的财政状况令面临沉重赤字的国家羡慕不已。”他补充说。

政府高级部长们向二十国集团政府、商界领袖和投资者传递了加拿大的经济信息。

“加拿大在世界舞台上发挥了重要的领导作用。” 肯尼部长在伦敦说,“我们运用三点计划保持我们的财政状况井然有序,以确保我们及时回到平衡预算的轨道。世界各地的金融市场正在发出明确信号:许多国家的公共债务过高。我很自豪地说,到2014年以前,加拿大的联邦赤字将实际上被消除。”

在北京,柏拉迪部长指出,加拿大是一个理想的投资目的地。“加拿大通过减少税收和为外国投资和贸易敞开大门,为持续繁荣引路。”他说。他指出,根据经济学家情报部,在未来五年中,加拿大将成为七国集团中最适宜经商的国家。

“今年,加拿大将在七国集团中保持最低的新企业投资总体税率。加拿大也是成为工业制造商保税区的第一个二十国集团成员。” 弗拉赫蒂部长说,“这将增强加拿大的竞争力,并表明加拿大在支持全球贸易自由化方面的领导作用。”
