BERLIN, Oct 14 (Reuters) - There is no end in sight for the weak phase weighing on the German economy, the economy ministry said on Monday, adding that a pronounced recession was unlikely.
The ministry said in its monthly report that growth in services and construction was largely compensating for a recession in the export-dependent manufacturing sector.
“The German economy remains in stagnation,” the ministry said. “Economy activity is stuck at the existing level.”
