Over 70 percent of the German workforce is employed in the services sector, the economic sector that generates the largest percentage of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). The business confidence index for the services sector has been consistently growing over the last years, increasing to 34.23 index points in 2019.

Another contributing factor to Germany’s strong, stable economy is the country’s low inflation rate, which has stayed between 0.3 and 1.5 percent in the past last five years.
