GDP of Germany 2018 In 2018, Germany's gross domestic product (GDP) amounted to 3,386 billion euros. Germany is thus among the leading five countries in the world GDP ranking.
Ze Germans are living large

Germany’s economy is not only one of the largest worldwide, it is also the largest in Europe and predicted to be among the countries with the largest GDP by the year 2030. Additionally, Germany is among the 20 countries with the largest gross domestic product per capita, and it is one of the leading exporters and importers, only surpassed by China and the United States in both cases. Subsequently, it also reports one of the highest trade surpluses worldwide.

Ze Germans are laying low

Germany’s national debt amounts to about 60 percent of GDP and is steadily decreasing. It also reports one of the lowest unemployment rates in the European Union. All signs seem to point to a very bright future for Germany’s economy. However, the country has been struggling with skilled labor shortages for a while and many companies are desperately looking for apprentices. This is partly due to very low population growth but also the rising unpopularity of apprenticeships.
