GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed yesterday to save the widely opposed TTIP trade deal.
She told top bosses she would seek a broad agreement on trade at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg on July 7-8, amid business concern that US President Donald Trump will quash the deal.
Mr Trump pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership within days of taking office and has pledged to renegotiate the Nafta deal with Canada and Mexico.
“We will do everything to achieve as broad an agreement as possible on this in Hamburg,” Ms Merkel said.
“In view of the new American administration that isn’t easy, but we must make the effort nonetheless.”
