Germany’s economy remains robust, the country’s central bank said on Monday, predicting a generally positive end to the year despite a slowdown so far. In its monthly report for September, the Bundesbank said German industry had been given a boost in July by the fact that there were fewer school holidays during that month. August, it said, however, would see the opposite. “The economic prospects for Germany have become duller since the middle of this year,” the report said, citing conflict in Ukraine that has hit business confidence, Reuters said.
