Germany posts faster growth in first quarter
(05-15 14:22)

The German economy, Europe's biggest, gathered momentum in the first three months of 2014, expanding by 0.8 percent, official data showed on Thursday.
That represented an acceleration from the preceding quarter, when gross domestic product had grown by 0.4 percent, and the pick-up was driven exclusively by booming domestic demand, the federal statistics office Destatis said in a statement. --AFP
