Germany's GDP down 1.7% in Q1

Germany’s gross domestic product (GDP) adjusted for price, season and calendar fell 1.7% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the previous three-month period, the country's statistical office Destatis said in a preliminary report on Friday.

On an annual basis, Europe's largest economy contracted by 3.3% adjusted for price variations. Adjusted for price and calendar, the German GDP was down 3% on the year.

The report noted that the coronavirus pandemic is at fault for another decline in economic performance in early 2021 as the crisis impacted household consumption the most.
