U.S. economy still "very tough": Geithner

DALLAS (Reuters) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Friday that America’s economy remained “very tough” and that key sectors such as construction were still struggling.

“It is a very tough economy still,” he said in Dallas at a meeting of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

“Parts of the economy are still very hard ... anyone in construction knows that,” he said in brief remarks.
