ROME, March 31 (Reuters) - Trade disputes between the United States and Europe would hurt economic growth and global governance at a time when the West needs to show a unified front against unfair trade practices, Italy's industry minister said on Friday.
"Any trade clash between the United States and Europe would be dangerous not only for our economies, but also for the rules that govern globalisation," Industry Minister Carlo Calenda told reporters in Rome.
Calenda said Western countries should refrain from trade disputes "that would symbolically show a division at a moment when the Western world should be unified in protecting its citizens from unfair trade practices". (Reporting by Antonella Cinelli, writing by Steve Scherer)
