Last quote by Klaus Wohlrabe
So far Donald Trump has had no effect on the current surveys, which surprised us because his remarks would indicate not such a good mood, or sentiment suffering in the German export industry. But surprisingly, export expectations rose, and for now, that sentiment is still very optimistic. But of course nothing concrete has been decided so far.

If you look at the details, it's due to the fact that apparently orders, including from Germany, have not gone so well in August. Therefore a small decrease can also be observed. But worst hit were companies that have a close trading-relationship with the United Kingdom, like the chemicals industry and automobile sector.

Many (people) expected the IFO index to drop, especially after the attacks in Paris. But our figures show that the responses were no different. That means the trends remained the same and the index increased. The market uncertainty apparently has no effect on the German economy: it appears to be unimpressed and wants to invest even more.

Importers and exporters in contact with Russia tend to be more pessimist than companies that have nothing to do with Russia.The euro zone is still not in the starting blocks and the public administration at present does not provide the conditions that could boost private investments.
