German economy grew by 3.6% in 2010

The German economy rebounded strongly in 2010, growing by 3.6%, according to provisional figures from the National Statistics Office.

German GDP grew at its fastest pace since reunification in 1990, as an export recovery was matched by increased domestic demand.
