LONDON (Reuters) - Economic projections for Canada are better than for other countries but Canada is not immune to global trends because it depends on trade, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Thursday.
He told reporters that the just-concluded G20 summit in London took measures that should give comfort and confidence to markets. Harper said he saw more stability in the financial system than at the last G20 summit in November.
“It’s a deeper recession than it was in November, but with a lot of stability,” Harper said, adding that measures are beginning to bear fruit.
