Germany Economy

Germany's economy grew by 0.7 percent in 2012. That's down from the year before but outpaces the recession-hit eurozone as a whole.

Government figures showed Tuesday that Europe's largest economy slowed from 3.0 percent as a debt crisis sapped the eurozone, which includes Germany's major trading partners.

Exports to the United States and China have helped support Germany's economy even as demand sags in crisis hit-countries such as Spain, Portugal and Greece.
