This report: Hannover is the central hub for the Exportguter of the German economy the showcase of the German industry, Hamburg. The port from which traditional Hanseatic League still claim he was Germany's gateway to the world, lives that the Federal Republic is forced, almost to export any price. Each 5 Federal workplace is directly or indirectly dependent on the export. But also of import is vital. The Federal Republic is an a country dependent on the constant flow of natural products and natural resources.
The Bonn Government is one of the spokesmen of a reasonable balance of interests with the raw materials and developing countries. The German development aid has in addition to its humanitarian aspect also self-serving motives: to consolidate the sales opportunities for dei own industrial products and to improve. The billion loans to ailing neighbouring countries pursue the same purpose. As economically healthy countries are the best i.e. kaufstärksten trading partners.
High technological standard and the power of the German industry have so far prevented the world recession fully hit by German export. However complain many industries over a sharp decline in sales. The German economy has the highest unit wage costs of the world to cope with now, a burden in the international competition. On the other hand, high wages and permitted have contributed significantly to the social peace in the country.
