In a recent Reuters online article, “Japan says TPP is not a place to negotiate currencies” http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/31/japan-economy-aso-idUSL3N10B06Y20150731, dated July 31st, 2015, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso made it clear that there would be no talks of manipulating currency rates in the TPP negotiations. A U.S. proposal to discuss currency questions has been proposed and endorsed by several nations, but Japanese officials say that these issues are not appropriate for the ongoing TPP negotiations and have already been dealt with during the IMF, G7, and G20 summits.[wpvideo kchDFeC8]

One thought on “TPP & Currency Manipulation”
  1. Very interesting article! I wonder how changes in currency rates will affect the TPP before, during, and after its completion.
