TOKYO -- Trade chiefs from Japan, Australia and India agreed on Tuesday to develop principles that will strengthen supply chains through better data management in the Indo-Pacific region.

Koichi Hagiuda, Japan's minister for economy, trade and industry, met virtually with his counterparts Piyush Goyal from India and Dan Tehan of Australia. The three later issued a joint statement calling for "supply-chain principles" in the Indo-Pacific. The principles are due to be finalized next year.
