MUNICH Feb 22 The leadership of U.S. President
Donald Trump is not having any impact on the German economy and
Britain's looming departure from the European Union is not
affecting the mood in corporate boardrooms either, an economist
at the Ifo institute said.
"The German economy is in surprisingly strong shape in
politically uncertain times," Klaus Wohlrabe said after Ifo's
monthly survey showed German business morale unexpectedly
improving in February.
He added that consumption was continuing to prop up Europe's
largest economy and data suggested exports would become an
increasingly strong pillar of support.
