OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Industry Minister Tony Clement said on Thursday he will go to Washington on Tuesday to discuss General Motors Corp's restructuring efforts with the U.S. administration.

Clement told reporters that Ottawa's main goal in the process is to maintain Canada's 20 percent share of GM's North American production.
