TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan hopes to coordinate with its Group of Seven partners in seeking a swift containment of the coronavirus pandemic and a strong recovery in the global economy, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Monday.
Aso made the remark to reporters after attending a phone meeting with finance leaders of the G7 advanced economies.
“I told the G7 meeting that we must seek a balance between the need to contain the pandemic and keep the economy moving,” Aso said.
