PM to participate in an economic consultation with top Canadian business leaders

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that he will meet with some of Canada’s leading business women today in a roundtable discussion about economic objectives in the year to come. The Prime Minister will be joined by Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance.

“I look forward to hearing from our top business leaders on how our Government can continue to maintain and improve our economic performance in the year ahead,” said the Prime Minister. “Our priorities continue to be creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for all Canadians and their families while keeping taxes low. The suggestions from today’s roundtable will contribute to our overall plan to maintain our economic stability while the global economy remains fragile.”

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss economic priorities and to propose suggestions to ensure Canadian taxpayers’ dollars are put to their best use in 2013. This will be the first of several economic consultations the Prime Minister will participate in around the country, focussing on engaging Canadians in discussions about the economy.

“By receiving ideas from Canadians across the country both through online consultations and business roundtables, our Government will be better able to address their needs in the coming year. Their suggestions will also inform how we build on pro-growth initiatives, to create jobs and long-term prosperity for Canadians, while keeping taxes low and achieving our objective to balance the budget before the end of this Parliament.”
