The economic dialog between the two of the biggest economies could potentially deepen U.S.-Japan economic relations.
On Monday, the United States and Japan are likely to hold their second economic dialogue on October 16 in Washington, said a source familiar with the matter at hand.
The source went on to add, Japan’s Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso is expected to skip the G20’s meeting of finance minister as well as the meeting with officials from the IMF from October 12, due to Japan’s upcoming general elections.
Japanese Vice Finance Minister for International Affairs Masatsugu Asakawa is expected to attend those meetings.
Aso, who also serves as finance minister, and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence held the first economic dialogue in April.
