Mainly due to problems in the supply chain of German manufacturing companies, the business sentiment index of the Munich-based ifo economic research institute decreased more than expected in October.

German business sentiment still not optimistic

The indicator fell to 97.7 points from 98.9 points in the previous month instead of the expected 97.9 points.

Supply problems are a major concern among manufacturing companies, explained Clemens Fuest, president of the ifo Institute for Economic Research (ifo Institut – Leibniz-Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung an der Universität München e.V.), which had been declining for four months now. (MTI)
