OTTAWA -- Canada will co-host a major United Nations conference on dealing with the economic crisis spawned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will co-host the Thursday event with his Jamaican counterpart Andrew Holness and the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
The top priority will be expanding liquidity in the global economy and maintaining financial stability while safeguarding the gains being made in helping less-developed countries.
The conference will raise Canada s profile as it competes for a seat on UN Security Council next month against Norway and Ireland.
