"Though the immediate effects on United Kingdom retailers might look relatively modest, it is worth paying close attention to this dispute because it's future course is unpredictable, fast moving and could quickly escalate to engulf other, seemingly unrelated areas of trade", he said. "The German automotive industry advocates talking to the U.S. despite the current hard situation in order to strengthen transatlantic relations and solve existing problems".
