Morneau, Mnuchin to talk trade during G7 meeting in Italy: source

OTTAWA, May 8 (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Bill Morneau will discuss trade and infrastructure financing during a bilateral meeting with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin at the G7 meeting in Bari, Italy later this week, a senior Canadian finance official said on Monday.

While trade is not part of the formal agenda of the meeting of finance ministers and central bankers from the Group of Seven rich nations in Italy this week - and which has sparked tensions between Canada and the United States - it will be discussed as part of the broader economic growth discussion and Morneau will raise the issue with Mnuchin, the source said.
