The latest ZEW releases showed the economic outlook in Germany improving in February ‘despite growing economic and political uncertainties’. According to ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach, financial market experts expect an economic recovery in H1, while ‘more than 50 per cent of the experts now predict that short-term interest rates in the Euro Area will rise in the next six months’.
