The United States called Tuesday on colleagues in the Group of 20 leading powers to boost growth to fight off short term economic risks, boost demand and generate jobs.
In a letter to fellow G-20 members obtained by AFP, US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew warned of weak demand in Japan and Europe, and said the world was still facing "considerable volatility."
"While we are experiencing a global economic recovery, activity remains weak and global demand is deficient. As a result, our economies are producing too few jobs," Lew said.
