Berlin and Beijing must revamp their relationship to adapt to digital changes, said Angela Merkel, who has made the issue a top priority of her fourth term as German Chancellor.

Germany lags behind other industrialised countries and Merkel said during a visit to China she hoped the two countries would sign a memorandum of understanding in the coming months for the automobile sector, specifically on autonomous driving.

That, she said on Friday, should provide German companies with more opportunities and security in this new technology.

“Cooperation needs to be put on a completely new footing due to digitalisation,” Merkel said.
