Half a mil­lion jobs this year

The Star Early Edition - - INTERNATIONAL -

GER­MANY’S DIHK Cham­bers of In­dus­try and Com­merce ex­pects 500 000 new jobs to be cre­ated in the Ger­man econ­omy this year, the Rheinis­che Post news­pa­per re­ported in yes­ter­day’s edi­tions. The num­ber emerged from a sur­vey of DIHK mem­bers, with the health care ser­vice sec­tor alone set to to cre­ate 130 000 jobs, largely due to the age­ing pop­u­la­tion and grow­ing health aware­ness, the news­pa­per re­ported. DIHK last month raised its 2017 growth fore­cast for the Ger­man econ­omy to 1.8 per­cent from its pre­vi­ous es­ti­mate of 1.6 per­cent.
