Exchange Rate in Germany
Germany - Exchange RateDetailed national accounts data showed that the economy contracted at a slightly softer pace than initially estimated in Q2. Nonetheless, Covid-19 and associated containment measures weighed heavily on domestic and foreign demand: Exports and household consumption fell particularly sharply compared to Q1. Covid-19 has also dealt a blow to public finances, with data showing that the government ran a marked fiscal deficit in H1—the first H1 shortfall since 2011—as revenues dropped and expenses rose amid the vast stimulus package. Turning to Q3, activity seems to be recovering and the economy should exit recession. Business and consumer confidence turned less sour in July–August, while operating conditions in the private sector improved notably in the same period. The extension of Covid-19 relief measures in late August, such as the short-time work scheme, should further stimulate activity.
