Germany posts economic slide due to global trade barriers

German GDP moved down 0.2% compared to the previous quarter, according to today’s data from the Federal Statistics Office.

Global tariff wars and the UK’s parting with the EU are reflected in the German economy that is going through the ninth consecutive growth year.
