Japanese Leadership Strengthening The Global Economy
Finance Minister Taro Aso joined his counterparts from around the world in Washington, DC recently as they converged for the IMF and World Bank Spring Meetings. During these sessions, the Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors from G20 Nations held meetings where Minister Aso discussed the risks facing the global economy, particularly from inward-looking policies. He remarked that “it is important to strengthen global growth through free and fair trade.”
Minister Aso also participated in discussions about the “Future of Work,” a term referring to the challenges facing workers as technology changes labor markets rapidly and unpredictably. He emphasized Japan’s view that education at various levels is key to enhancing the resiliency of affected workforces.
