Merkel says growth possible without additional money

Cutting bureaucracy, digital agenda key for growth

(ANSA) - Berlin, September 22 - German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday said there are many ways to foster growth in the euro zone "without additional money".
    Speaking at a joint press conference with French Premier Manuel Valls in Berlin, the chancellor cited cutting bureaucracy and the digital agenda among key investment strategies to boost recovery.
    Last month, Merkel delivered a sharp rebuke to France - as well as Italy - for allegedly hindering the euro zone's recovery by breaking longstanding fiscal rules.
    She said a stagnant economy was the result of the single currency zone's inability to keep in check countries that ran high deficits against limits set by Brussels.
