FRANKFURT Oct 5 German engineering output is
expected to rise by 1 percent next year as higher productivity
through automation and digitisation outweigh low global economic
growth and political uncertainty in key export markets, industry
association VDMA said on Wednesday.
The VDMA - which represents large industrial groups such as
Siemens and Linde as well as many smaller,
family-owned firms - stuck to its forecast for zero output
growth this year.
