Cana­dian Econ­omy Tops in G7


TREN­TON (Dis­patches) - Canada will lead the eco­nomic pow­er­houses of the G7 coun­tries in growth in 2017, the In­ter­na­tional Mone­tary Fund (IMF) said Tues­day.

The IMF es­ti­mated the Cana­dian gross do­mes­tic prod­uct in 2017 would reach 3 per­cent, an in­crease of half a per­cent­age point from its ear­lier es­ti­mate in July.

It said the U.S. would be sec­ond with growth of 2.2 per­cent. The G7 is made up of seven of the world’s lead­ing eco­nomic democ­ra­cies that in­cludes Canada, France, Ger­many, Italy, Ja­pan, the U.K. and the U.S.
