German finance minister endorses Merkel's vision for European investment fund

AMSTERDAM, June 4 (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz on Monday said he endorsed German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s vision for a European fund for investments in weaker member states in the euro zone.

“This is one government”, Scholz said after a meeting with Dutch Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra in The Hague. Scholz is a mmeber of the Social Democrats, junior partner in Merkel’s coalition.
