Der Spiegel magazine reported on Sunday an internal German finance ministry document, quoting:

  • “There is a chance of more favourable economic developments than expected, especially on the domestic side”
  • Said the scenario is based on the likelihood that the labour market and future consumer and investor confidence will be stronger than previously predicted

The document also said:

  • euro zone recovery could turn out to be stronger than expected
  • Ukraine crisis and “geopolitical tensions” were named as risks for the German economy
