The European Central Bank’s policy normalization must continue, European Central Bank (ECB) Governing Council member and German central bank head Joachim Nagel said on Friday.

“I am confident that the ECB’s Transmission Protection Instrument (TPI) would withstand legal challenges,” Nagel added and noted that they still expect favourable growth in Germany and in 2022 and 2023.
