Today is the first day of the quiet period of the German Council of Economic Experts. The council members will not make any public statements until the annual report is handed over to the German government on Wednesday, 11 November 2020. On the same day, the annual report will be published on this website.
In accordance with its legal mandate, the Council will discuss the economic situation at national and international level as well as its development taking into account the coronavirus pandemic. The annual report will again include the national productivity report, which the Council publishes annually as the national productivity board of Germany.
