G20 finance chiefs discuss FTA

Finance ministers and central bank chiefs of the Group of 20 economies met for 3 hours on their first day of talks in Germany. Sources say some members expressed concerns over protectionism.

The 2-day gathering that started on Friday in the southwestern town of Baden-Baden is the first chance for the leaders to discuss economic challenges since US President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January.

One focus of the talks is whether members can honor earlier agreements to promote free trade.
