U.S. Economy

America is the world’s largest national economy and leading global trader, and US economic developments affect not only SCOA operations, but also those of Sumitomo Corporation more broadly.  As policy actions taken in the US and countries around the globe begin to restore economic and job growth in the wake of the global recession, the SCOA Washington office will continue to keep a close watch on the US economic developments relevant to SC businesses and industries.

To comment, or if additional information is needed on a particular topic, please do not hesitate to contact the SCOA Washington office.  We also encourage SC group company employees to download the latest Washington office publications on the US economy, located in our online resource library at:
