Presentation of the Economic Survey of Germany in Berlin with Secretary General José Ángel Gurría (M) and ​Álvaro Santos Pereira (R) - April 2016. One recurrent theme of recent Economic Surveys of Germany is the recommendation to engage in structural reforms which make the economy more inclusive, remove entry barriers for overly regulated domestic services markets and broaden support for innovation spending. Such a policy mix would close the gap between Germany's booming export oriented manufacturing industries and the less dynamic domestic service providers for domestic customers.  More Details to be found in OECD ECO WPs 940 and 780.
