Kitco News

BERLIN, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The trade dispute between the United States and China is having an impact on global and therefore euro zone growth, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Thursday. Speaking at a news conference to present the government's downwardly revised growth forecasts, Altmaier said that Berlin and its European allies wanted to safeguard the rules-based free trade order by reforming the World Trade Organization (WTO). Altmaier also said that a lack of skilled workers was putting the brakes on German economic expansion. (Reporting by Michael Nienaber Editing by Michelle Martin)
