    Release of the Monetary Policy Report

    Opening Statement David Dodge
    The Canadian economy has grown faster than was projected in last April's Monetary Policy Report and the July Update, largely because of a surge in exports. It is now operating near its production capacity and continues to adjust to global economic developments.

    Global Economic Developments and the Implications for Ontario

    Remarks David Dodge Ontario Economic Summit Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
    One theme that I heard repeatedly in Washington is that 2004 is turning out to be a better year than many had thought, particularly over the first half of the year. Indeed, the IMF is now projecting global economic growth of 5 per cent in 2004, which would be a marked improvement from the 3.9 per cent rate seen in 2003.
