Germany: GDP growth decelerates in 2013

According to a preliminary estimate from the Federal Statistics Institute (Destatis), GDP expanded 0.4% in 2013, which marked a deceleration compared to the 0.7% expansion registered in 2012. The reading, which fell short of market expectations of a 0.5% expansion and the Bundesbank’s estimate of 0.6%, represents the slowest GDP growth since the height of the global financial crisis in 2009.
