Geithner to attend G7 meeting in Marseille
US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner will attend a finance chiefs' meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized countries in France next month, the Treasury announced Tuesday.
The G7 meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors, which takes place September 9-10 in Marseille, is expected to focus on the weakness of the global economy, stalling US growth, and cracks in the debt-laden eurozone.
"The secretary will meet with his international counterparts to discuss the need for a reinvigorated global effort to support growth, jobs and financial stability," the Treasury said.
The G7 includes the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.
