Germany's Weber wants more EU investment, dialogue with Italy

BERLIN, Nov 13 (Reuters) - German conservative Manfred Weber, who is running to take over the European Union’s top job next year, would focus more on investment, including in digital infrastructure, if he becomes European Commission President, he told German radio on Tuesday.

He also said that Italy’s budget plans were not encouraging but he preferred to take the disagreement with Rome step by step and pursue dialogue. “Efforts must be made to practise dialogue,” he told Germany’s Deutschlandfunk.
