U.S. says it’s back at the table to help global economic recovery
U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration told allies on Friday it was re-engaging with them to help steer the global economy out of its worst slump since the Great Depression.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told her peers from the Group of Seven rich nations that Washington was committed to multilateralism and “places a high priority on deepening our international engagement and strengthening our alliances”.
Yellen spoke to the G7 in an online meeting, chaired by Britain, at which she called for continued fiscal support to secure the recovery, saying “the time to go big is now”.
Britain said officials discussed giving help to workers and businesses hit by the pandemic while ensuring sustainability of public finances “in the long term”.
As well as the United States and Britain, the G7 includes Japan, France, Germany, Italy and Canada.
