David H. McCormick, Under Secretary of Treasury for International Affairs

Fernando Gonzalez, Vice President, American International Group, Inc.

The United States and Japan have had a vigorous economic relationship over the previous half century. However, the collapse of Japan’s bubble economy, the rise of globalization and the emergence of China have altered many of the relationship’s facets and adjustment has sometimes been difficult. Over the coming decades, this essential relationship will continue to evolve and mature, buffeted by these and other factors, and successful outcomes on many key issues will depend on it. Under Secretary of Treasury for International Affairs David McCormick discusses how the U.S. and Japan will address global economic challenges while maintaining a strong partnership.
