Latest DIHK-Economic-Survey: Positive Outlook for the New Year

03/01/2013

According to statements of more than 28,000 companies questioned, a positive economic development is expected for 2013. The gross domestic product will rise by 0.7 percent, according to the survey results. In particular, a rise in export and import is expected. However, some obstacles for growth remain, including financing shortfalls of the EU, tax increase as well as shortage of skilled personnel in the labor market. Therefore, according to DIHK CEO Dr. Martin Wansleben no great shifts can be expected. More details and information on the survey can be found on the DIHK homepage.
