German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble said that since USA and Europe “have a high standard” the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) “would be a much better opportunity also worldwide with better standards, environment protection, product security and minimums standards” in Berlin on Wednesday during a conference on the TTIP.

Schauble insisted on European solidarity to deal with the current refugee and migrant crisis on the continent, saying “we have to deal better with these migratory movements and for that we need European solidarity and European solutions.” When asked about whether the Paris attacks from November 13 would influence the economy, Schauble said that “naturally this changes the world.”

The conference was organized by newspaper Handesblatt and supported by the German Association of Industry (BDI) under the name “TTIP. Facts. Thesis. Arguments.”
