Soar in industry orders suggests German industry will gain steam
In June, German industrial orders went up twice as much as expected because a soar in domestic demand compensated weaker foreign appetite, as Friday’s data showed, hinting this sector of the EU’s largest economy will manage to gain traction in the nearer months.
Factories reported a 1% soar in contracts in June after in May orders for German-made goods rallied by an upwardly revised 1.1%, according to data from the Economy Ministry. It surpassed the Reuters forecast for a 0.5% growth.
The order numbers appear to be another mosaic tile in what’s an extremely upbeat picture of the German economy, as some financial experts state.
