Germany: Economy Shrinks on Weak Investment; Business Confidence Improves Slightly – Ifo

The German economy contracted at the end of the year on weaker investment, revised data from Destatis showed. GDP slid 0.3% sequentially in the three months leading up to December after stagnating in the third quarter. The statistical office confirmed the preliminary estimate published on January 30. Data showed that household spending gained 0.2% and government consumption increased 0.3%.

Meanwhile, gross fixed capital formation slid 1.9%. Construction capital formation posted a 1.7% decline from the declines already registered in the two previous quarters. The fall in gross fixed capital formation in machinery and equipment eased 3.5%. Exports decreased 1.6%. At the same time, the decline in imports was somewhat larger, at -1.7%. Subdued foreign demand, ongoing geopolitical tensions, and high energy prices contributed to the weakness in trade in goods, Destatis said. Calendar-adjusted GDP dropped 0.2% year-on-year, as estimated, following a 0.3% decrease in the third quarter. Price-adjusted GDP slid 0.4% annually, slower than the 0.7% contraction in the preceding period. The price-adjusted rate also matched the flash estimate. 02/23/2024 - 05:04:00 (RTTNews)

Business confidence in Germany strengthened modestly in February due to less pessimism regarding the outlook, mainly in the services and trade sectors, while expectations sunk to their lowest in over three decades in the construction industry, survey data from the ifo Institute showed. The ifo business climate index rose to 85.5 from 85.2 in January. Economists had forecast a score of 85.5. The current assessment index was unchanged at 86.9, while it was expected to fall to 86.7. The expectations measure climbed back to its December reading of 84.1 from 83.5 the previous month. Economists had forecast a score of 84.0. 02/23/2024 - 04:47:00 (RTTNews)
