BERLIN (Reuters) - Several sectors of Germany’s manufacturing sector are expecting a shortness of supplies from the Far East region in the coming weeks due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in China, business association BDI said on Monday.
The sectors affected include engineering, autos, pharmaceuticals and paper, BDI said in a statement.
“The more than 5000 German companies in China are currently severely restricted in procurement, production and sales,” it said.
