BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Tuesday he expected Europe’s largest economy to recover quickly from the coronavirus crisis, though some sectors were likely to rebound faster than others.

“My view is that most parts of the economy will recover quite quickly and we already see this in the figures today,” Scholz told the Wall Street Journal in a recorded interview as part of a virtual conference.
