BERLIN (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund will not yet change its growth forecast for Germany after first quarter growth came in stronger than expected, its mission chief for Germany said on Friday.

The positive development, a 0.4% quarter-on-quarter growth rate according to an official flash estimate, might have been driven by one-off effects, IMF’s Enrica Detragiache said.

The IMF expects a full-year growth rate of 0.8% in Germany.
