BERLIN, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Germany will discuss the United States' Inflation Reduction Act with Washington to address competition concerns, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Tuesday.

Germany must cooperate with other countries to prevent "a massive customs war between all kinds of countries", Scholz told industry representatives at an engineering conference in Berlin.
