NANJING, Nov 29 (Reuters) - The yuan's link to the dollar is problematic for some sectors in the European economy, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said on Sunday, ahead of a summit with Chinese leaders.

Not because we have a too strong euro but because we have a weak dollar, and this is indeed creating some problems, he told reporters.

Barroso said that he had delivered that message at a dinner with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. (Reporting by Chris Buckley and Simon Rabinovitch; Editing by Mike Nesbit) ((; +86-13501014479)) ((If you have a query or comment on this story, send an email to
