MUNICH (dpa-AFX) – German companies are currently finding it difficult to predict the development of their business due to Corona. This results from a new question with which the Ifo Institute records the uncertainty of companies. On a scale from zero to 100, the value in October was 64 – lower than in April, but significantly higher than in February, said the head of the Ifo surveys, Klaus Wohlrabe, on Friday in Munich.
Since April 2019, the new Business Uncertainty Index has largely run contrary to the Ifo business climate. From now on, the institute will regularly publish the new measure of business uncertainty in its press releases on the business climate. / Rol / DP / nas
