MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday that the digital world needs regulations like those that exist for financial markets in the G20 and for trade under the World Trade Organization.

Merkel spoke in Mexico City alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. Germany wants to use its presidency of the Group of 20 major economies to develop a concrete plan on digital policy at a summit in July.
