In meetings today with British Prime Minister David Cameron and business organizations representing the G8 economies, I urged policy makers to embrace solutions that will spur growth and help create conditions to restore confidence.

The urgent priority binding all of the G8 economies together is the need for stronger economic growth and a return to competitiveness.

I also stressed the importance of the role the UK plays within the EU and our desire to see the Canada-EU comprehensive trade agreement come to conclusion.

I praise this year’s G8 leader, British Prime Minister David Cameron, for seeking ideas from the Canadian Chamber and its counterpart organizations from each of the G8 countries ahead of the G8 leaders’ summit scheduled for next month in Northern Ireland. Thanks to the initiative of the Confederation of British Industries, we spent nearly three hours at No. 10 Downing Street today meeting with Prime Minister Cameron and other officials.
