BERLIN, April 24 The German economy is not being
influenced by political uncertainty in the world and it should
show a really good performance for the first quarter, Ifo
economist Klaus Wohlrabe told Reuters on Monday.
"The German economy is by no means being impressed by
political uncertainty," Wohlrabe said.
He added that a dip in the expectations index in the Ifo
economic institute's April business sentiment survey was mainly
due to the industrial sector and did not signify a change in
sentiment in the economy as a whole.
"I think we'll see a really good first quarter," Wohlrabe
