Germany's Global Value-Adding Network

Client

Bertelsmann Stiftung

Year

2020

Prognos analysed the value-added interdependencies of the German economy in the years 2000, 2008, and 2014. The main target country for German value-added was producers in Germany, followed by the USA, China, France, and the UK.

Classic trade statistics based on wholesale trade figures alone are insufficient when analysing the importance of a country or region as a trading partner for the German economy. Prognos, therefore, examined in which countries value added from the German economy goes into production and also the origin countries of the value-added going into production in Germany.
