The Treasury said Geithner spoke early Monday to “a collective group of G7 finance ministers via conference call” ahead of the upcoming gathering in Rome opening Friday.

“His outreach underscored the imperative of all countries acting promptly to restore health to the global economy and financial sectors,” the statement said.

“He looks forward to further discussions on this topic with G7 ministers in Rome this weekend.”
