Germany wants to work closely with Biden on trade, China and climate

BERLIN (Reuters) – Europe and the United States should strengthen transatlantic ties with a trade deal to abolish tariffs and a WTO reform to increase pressure on China to play by international rules, Germany’s transatlantic coordinator Peter Beyer told Reuters.

“After the difficult years under Donald Trump, Germany and Europe now have a historic chance to breathe new life into the transatlantic partnership and improve relations with the U.S.,” Beyer said in an interview published on Monday.

The White House said on Sunday that Biden will hold his first event with other leaders from the Group of Seven nations in a virtual meeting on Friday to discuss the coronavirus pandemic, the world economy and China relations.
