The OECD Economic Survey of Germany 2012 reviews the major progress that has been made, notably on the labour market, and which paid off in the recent recession. It also outlines where more needs to be done to strengthen the growth potential, not least in view of rapid population ageing. Policy should focus on raising labour input and productivity growth through structural reforms. Implementing cost-effective climate change mitigation policies and fostering eco innovation would strengthen new drivers of growth.
