Friday, 23 September 2016 06:22 AM

BERLIN (AP) — German and French economic and financial leaders are meeting for talks focused on the strengthening of growth and investment in Europe, and the impact of Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

The Berlin talks Friday, a regular meeting of the Franco-German Financial and Economic Council founded in 1988, brings together the economy and finance ministers of both countries, and also the heads of the two national banks.

The German Economy Ministry said in addition to the "challenges after the Brexit vote," they'll talk about the priorities of the remaining 27 EU nations and cooperation with the G-20 with an eye on Germany's upcoming presidency next year.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker plan to meet with business leaders Wednesday in Berlin.
