TOKYO (Reuters) - Finance ministers from Group of Seven (G7) advanced economies agreed on "some points" over global tax reform at their virtual meeting, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Wednesday.

Aso declined to comment on specifically what the G7 finance leaders agreed, but said he hoped the G7 would reach a final agreement in October after ironing out differences of opinion.
