BERLIN, March 15 German Finance Minister
Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Wednesday he was looking forward to
the first meeting with his U.S. counterpart Steven Mnuchin on
Thursday, adding he did not expect him to come to Germany with a
closed mind on all matters.
Asked about proposals to introduce a U.S. border tax on
imports, Schaeuble said that he did not view the new U.S.
administration as being close to any decision.
"A country cannot just do this unilaterally," Schaeuble
said, adding that he was not expecting a fundamental change in
international tax policy, "at least not in the short term".
