Mainichi ran a Kyodo story from New York saying that the Department of the Treasury announced on Tuesday that Secretary Yellen will visit Japan on July 12-13 to discuss with her Japanese counterpart such issues as strengthened sanctions on Russia, the response to higher prices, and stronger and more resilient supply chains. The report said that this will be Yellen’s first trip to Japan after assuming her current post in January last year. The report speculated that she may discuss exchange rates with Japanese officials. After Japan, Yellen will attend a meeting of the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in Bali, Indonesia, on July 15-16 and will visit South Korea on July 19-20.
