BERLIN, Nov 23 (Reuters) – It is impossible for the German economy to quickly exit trade relations with China, but Chinese investments in critical sectors must be examined closely, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said on Wednesday.
“Nothing speaks against continuing to maintain economic relations with China … but everything speaks against closing your eyes and hoping the situation doesn’t get difficult,” Habeck said in a conference organised by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper in Berlin.
