BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s economic situation remains positive despite Britain’s June 23 referendum vote to leave the European Union, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Wednesday.

“The economic conditions in Germany remain favorable. The result of the British referendum changed nothing about that, or at least nothing noticeable,” Schaeuble told a news conference to present Germany’s financing plans through to 2020.
