German economy inches up as investments and trade drive third quarter surge

In the third quarter German economic surge managed to accelerate because buoyant exports as well as investment powered the expansion in Europe's number one economy, as the Federal Statistics Office informed on Tuesday.

Seasonally adjusted GDP tacked on by 0.8% on the quarter, as the data disclosed. It turned to be the stronger than the consensus estimate of 0.6% in a Reuters survey. It marked a leap from the 0.6% in the second quarter.

In the third quarter the German economy ascended by 2.3% on the year, as unadjusted data disclosed. It happened to be in line with a consensus estimate.

Updated for calendar affects, the yearly surge rate tallied to 2.8% in the July-September period versus 2.3% in the previous quarter, as the office informed. It was definitely the strongest outcome since the beginning of 2014.

The figures actually provided Chancellor Angela Merkel with a tailwind as her conservative bloc attempts to forge rather a tricky three-way coalition government, including the pro-business Free Democrats as well as the left-leaning Greens. This alliance hasn’t been tested on a national level yet.
