The chief finance minister for the euro zone has underlined his optimism for the President Donald Trump administration despite ongoing concerns regarding its protectionist agenda.
"I would be lying if I say I'd be free of worries so yes I worry about it," Jeroen Dijsselbloem told CNBC Saturday when asked about Trump's attitudes.
"Yet the Trump government seems to become more and more realistic and sensible. So let's put out confidence in that," he said, speaking in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy.
