(Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank AG Chief Executive Officer Christian Sewing said that politicians need to set out a growth agenda in elections set to decide the successor to Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“We need to have a clear European plan,” Sewing said in a Bloomberg Television German election forum on Wednesday. “That means one European home market for our corporate companies, for our industries.”

Germany also has the potential to be a leader in sustainability, Sewing said.
