Recent Economic Developments and the Conduct of Monetary PolicyI want to talk to you about the Canadian economy - how it has evolved over the past few months and what are the prospects ahead. In doing so, I will review the economic forecast from our latest Monetary Policy Report, which we published in April. Then I will talk about what has changed since that time.

Low, stable, and predictable inflation is the means to our ultimate objective of solid economic performance over time.

Groups such as this one serve many important purposes, not the least of which is the development of trading links that help to strengthen the economies of both our countries.
