G20 finance ministers to meet by end-March: Canada

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Finance ministers of the Group of 20 leading developed and developing nations will meet by March 31 to follow up on the weekend's Washington summit, a senior Canadian government official said on Monday.

The G20 summit communique had committed finance ministers to implement a series of high-priority actions by March 31. It did not specifically mention a ministerial meeting by then, but the official said there would be one.

"G20 finance ministers and officials will be pulling together a concrete work plan by the end of March 2009, so (there will be) a finance ministers meeting by the end of March," said the official, briefing reporters on condition of anonymity.
