BERLIN (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said he does not expect finance ministers from the Group of 20 leading economies to make much progress on resolving global trade disputes at a meeting this weekend in Buenos Aires.

“Unfortunately, it does not look like we will take big steps forward in Buenos Aires,” Scholz told the Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper.
