BERLIN (Reuters) – Volkswagen <VOWG_p.DE> confirmed its 2019 outlook and medium-term targets on Monday, the German carmaker said, adding that the group was still “very resilient” in an increasingly difficult economic environment.

“Strict cost discipline is, however, necessary to achieve our goals in the long term,” chief financial officer Frank Witter said in a statement.

He added that Volkswagen was sticking to its strategic financial targets for 2020 and 2025.
