Japan, the world’s third largest economy, is still recovering from the pandemic and faces significant challenges. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sparked volatility, sending the yen to a 24-year low against the dollar and increasing worries for Japan’s economic and financial stability. Masato Kanda, Japan’s vice minister for international affairs, joins Mark Sobel, US chair of OMFIF, to discuss Japan’s economy, the condition of its financial system and how international developments are shifting Japanese policy.
