Washington: Ahead of next week`s G-20 summit, US President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister
Stephen Harper have expressed hope that the meeting of the top
economies of the world in Pittsburgh would be "useful and
productive".

"We both agree that coordination still needs to continue
at the international level and are looking forward to the G20,
where we can both discuss how to sustain efforts to kickstart
the economy, but also make sure that we`re starting to look at
exit strategies and what a sustainable growth model would be
long term," Obama said at a joint press conference along with
Harper.

"We`re planning for the G20; we`re looking forward to
that. I think that`s well in hand. I think we`re going to have
very useful and productive meetings there," Harper said after
his meeting with Obama at the White House.
