Secretary General's Highlights of the Week (Sept. 9)

I hope you and your family in Tokyo are safe and managed to get through the typhoon and public transport disruption today. Unusually, no links from me today. One update. The Secretariat senior team spent most of this afternoon (and will also spend tomorrow morning) at the Financial Services Agency meeting Directors and Deputy Directors as part of our Autumn meet and greets. All were excellent meetings. We emphasized how much the IBA Japan values our long-standing and continuing relationship with the FSA. We explained our broader IBA Japan topic agenda and discussed common topics of interest including promoting the success of the Tokyo as a Financial Services Hub. More on all of this at a later date.
