MONTREAL, March 29 /CNW Telbec/ - When the provincial budget is tabled on Tuesday, March 30, 2010, Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, will be on hand in Québec to give his reaction on the spot, as soon as the lock-up is over at about 4 p.m. Mr. Leblanc's comments will be based on the Board of Trade's pre-budget submission, made public on December 7, 2009.

The Board of Trade makes the following four recommendations:

    1. Hasten the pace of public infrastructure investments;
    2. Support investment in human capital;
    3. Improve our economy's productivity through research and innovation;
    4. Pave the way for a gradual return to a balanced budget without
       stifling an as-yet tenuous recovery.
