The United States and Japan will hold their first economic “two-plus-two” dialogue involving their foreign and industry ministers on July 29 in Washington, a U.S. Commerce Department official said Wednesday.

The launch of the framework was agreed upon by U.S. President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida when they held a virtual meeting in January. Its focus will be on enhancing economic security, such as through developing resilient supply chains for key items like semiconductors, amid China’s growing economic clout.
