Economic Prospects of Germany
Europe's largest economy continues to grow, and is thus on course for growth for the tenth time in succession, albeit recently at a much more moderate pace. Many uncertainties in the foreign trade environment are slowing the momentum noticeably. However, investments in the construction industry and in private consumption in particular are keeping the economy going.
