Attention: Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor TORONTO--(CCNMatthews - March 5, 2007) - Canada's productivity, the most important measure of our competitiveness, has dropped to just 77.7 per cent that of the United States. Among the 30 members of the OECD, the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development, Canada now ranks 17th in productivity.

Sean Finn will discuss specific recommendations the government needs to take in the March 20th budget to improve our lagging productivity - and with it our standard of living.
