Japanese Prime Minister (PM) Yoshihide Suga warned against trade protectionism while pushing for open markets while speaking online from Tokyo in a meeting of the Asia-Pacific CEO on Friday.
A “free and open Indo-Pacific will be the cornerstone for the prosperity of this region.”
“Amidst a risk of inward-looking temptations in the face of the slump of the global economy, making rules for a free and fair global economy is critically important.”
“While continuing to promote WTO reform, Japan will aspire for the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific.”
