U.S. Chamber of Commerce Vice President for Asia and U.S.-Japan Business Council President David Gossack released the following statement on the trade announcement from President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe:

“As the world’s third largest economy, Japan is one of the most important export markets for American goods and services. We welcome today’s announcement from President Trump and Prime Minister Abe on a new effort to expand bilateral trade and maximize benefits for American job creators. These new discussions should help put U.S. businesses on a level playing field with our foreign competitors and address longstanding issues between our two nations.
