Lagarde: Germany could invest more to drive growth

PARIS, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Christine Lagarde, the incoming president of the European Central Bank, said on Wednesday euro zone countries with large budget surpluses should invest more of that money in order to boost economic growth.

In an interview with France's RTL broadcaster days before she takes up her post, Lagarde singled out Germany and the Netherlands as countries that could deploy their surpluses to help growth. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Jon Boyle)
