BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Thursday he expected Europe’s largest economy to gain momentum next year after data published earlier in the day showed it expanded by 0.1% in the third quarter, avoiding a recession.

“We are cautiously optimistic. We will have bigger growth next year,” Scholz told a Bloomberg conference in Berlin, adding that while Germany was currently experiencing slower growth, it was not in an economic crisis.
