U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday said she “certainly” planned to remain on in her job.

Yellen told an event hosted by the New York Times Dealbook she had no plans to leave Treasury.

She also said China’s zero-COVID policy was a threat to healing ongoing supply chain difficulties that have sent prices sharply higher, but she would not give Beijing advice on managing the pandemic.
