German economy expected to grow in 2024, official says

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany is not in recession and its economy is expected to grow in 2024, Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s chief of staff, Wolfgang Schmidt, said on Tuesday.

“We don’t have a recession. We are not seeing anything that normally accompanies a recession, such as unemployment. The labour market is very stable, real wages are rising again. We will see growth this year,” Schmidt told an industry event.
