The US Department of the Treasury has said in a statement that Yellen will represent the United States at a meeting of Group of Seven (G7) finance ministers and central bank governors in Bonn, Germany this week.

Prior to the G7 sessions, Yellen stopped in Warsaw and is also scheduled to travel to Brussels on Monday, according to the statement.

While overseas, Yellen is expected to reinforce the United States' "commitment to multilateralism and advance US policy priorities on an inclusive economic recovery."

Yellen and US allies "will also continue their united efforts to increase economic pressure on Russia to end its brutal and illegal war against Ukraine," the statement said.

"She will also work with her counterparts to advance global tax policy as a part of a foreign policy for the middle class, combat the climate crisis, strengthen the global health architecture, and address the rising threat of global food insecurity resulting from Russia’s war," the statement added.
