Thanks to the reforms, in recent years the German economy has been able to profit greatly from the demand
for industrial goods in emerging countries, as well as from new government investments in developed
countries like the United States.
The wide diversification of the German export industry, both in terms of
products and markets, is an important factor in the strong growth of recent years. With unemployment falling
and domestic investment increasing, domestic demand is now also making a significant contribution to growth.
Naturally, even Germany is not immune to the European debt crisis, but in structural terms Germany is well
positioned to profit from growth in the world economy.
