HALIFAX, July 26, 2012 /CNW/ - First Ministers are taking a leadership
role on shaping Canada's economic future. Maintaining a strong and
growing economy is Premiers' number one priority.
Canadians across the country continue to be impacted by economic events
both domestically and around the world. Persistent weak economic
growth in our traditional trading markets and the growing economic
strength of China, Brazil, India and other emerging economies require
new strategies to compete and succeed globally.
To fully engage all the economic forces in the country the two orders of
government must be working together.
To this end Premiers will work with the federal government on developing
a stronger relationship that is essential to the further success of
As a first step, Premiers believe it is urgent that the Prime Minister
join the Premiers at a First Ministers' meeting in the fall to discuss
the economy, including the state of the world economy and its effects
on the daily life of Canadian citizens.
Premiers asked the Premiers of Nova Scotia, Ontario and Alberta to begin
the planning for the meeting.
