Yesterday, Secretary Lew visited Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies to deliver remarks and participate in a discussion on the state of the global economy. Previewing his participation in the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and G-20 spring meetings in Washington this week, Secretary Lew spoke about the challenges facing the international community in strengthening the global financial system and ensuring growth and opportunity in all nations.

Secretary Lew took questions from the Wall Street Journal’s David Wessel and later opened up the discussion to answer students’ questions on the pressing economic matters of the day. The discussion covered the President’s economic priorities outlined in the FY 2014 Budget as well the Treasury Department’s continued engagement with our partners around the world.
