US to push growth, tax reforms at G20 - Treasury's Lew

SYDNEY, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Global growth remains well below potential while unemployment is stubbornly high, the head of the U.S. Treasury said on Friday, calling on the Group of 20 to adopt policies that would boost economic growth.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told a news conference ahead of this weekend’s G20 meeting that another priority would be on tax reform, including progress on automatic sharing of tax information between countries.
