Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Angel Gurria, secretary-general of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, have affirmed that using multilateral mechanisms to tackle steel overproduction and other trade issues is important, the OECD chief said Thursday.

“Tariffs are the manifestation . . ., but the global forum is the only way in which you can deal with the substance of the problem, and if you do not deal with the substance, you’re going to have a recurrence of the issue … we both agree this is important,” Gurria told reporters after a meeting with Abe.
