OTTAWA - The federal Conservatives say their efforts in Parliament over the last few months have helped the country remain an island of stability amid continued economic turmoil elsewhere.

Looking back over the House of Commons session that's set to wrap up today, government House leader Peter Van Loan says the government's focus on the economy helped create thousands of jobs.

He also notes the Tories signed, or are in the process of negotiating, new trade agreements with several countries, particularly in Central and South America.

He told a news conference those agreements should help create more jobs in the future.

MPs are expected to finish the spring session of Parliament later today.

They are scheduled to return from the summer break on Sept. 17.
