[Questions and answers:]


President Trump on February 3 signed an executive order directing a review of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Would you please let us know your thoughts on this?


We are aware of this news, but we will not comment on the policy. Japan and the US have been working together in various ways over the past four years to address such issues. As far as we know, the new Secretary of the Treasury has not yet been confirmed, but it will likely be Steven Mnuchin. If he is confirmed, we will be undertaking similar efforts with him as well.
