NHK and TBS reported at noon that visiting Secretary of Commerce Ross met with Minister for Economy, Trade, and Industry Seko this morning, quoting Seko as telling Ross at the onset of the meeting: “We will engage in practical discussions on the economic dialogue after we receive instructions from Deputy Prime Minister Aso and Vice President Pence after their talks. I hope to do so in a timely and action-oriented manner.” NHK said Seko told reporters after the meeting that they held “concrete, candid, and practical discussions” on trade policies and high-quality infrastructure. Noting that Secretary Ross expressed the view that trade talks with Japan are a top priority in addition to the renegotiation of NAFTA, the network said attention will be focused on what kind of discussions Minister Seko and Secretary Ross will embark on following the economic dialogue this afternoon.
