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.
