Finance Minister Aso expects close U.S.-Japan relations to be maintained under Trump

Friday morning’s Nikkei reported that Finance Minister Aso expressed the view at an Upper House committee meeting on Thursday that the close economic relations between the U.S. and Japan will be maintained even under the Trump administration. “Although I cannot say much before the new team is formed, Japan enjoys the trust [of the U.S.] in Asia,” said Aso. He also reportedly said he is hoping to gain Trump’s understanding for Japan’s foreign exchange policy as Trump has been criticizing Japan for allowing the yen to depreciate in order to expand exports.
