This Youtube video is interesting. CGTN's Rachelle Akuffo talks to Jackson Janes, senior fellow of the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. to comment on the end of Merkel era and Germany's economic outlook.

The economy of Germany is a highly developed social market economy. The great country has the largest national economy in Europe, the 4th-largest by nominal GDP in the world, and 5th by GDP (PPP).

Germany is rich in timber, lignite, potash and salt. Some minor sources of natural gas are being exploited in the state of Lower Saxony.

Germany is the world's top location for trade fairs. Around 2 thirds of the world's leading trade fairs take place in Germany. The largest annual international trade fairs and congresses are held in several German cities such as Hanover, Frankfurt, Cologne, Leipzig and Düsseldorf.
