I'm not in Germany but in Portugal, a EU and Eurozone member country.
The country is the heaviest weight in the Eurozone/ECB therefore largely responsible for the Euro's every move upwards or downwards.
The stellar quarterly growth achieved is very good news for the EU27, EU16 and Europe at large.
European economies can be split up neatly between those that will predictably surge on - now clearly led by Germany - and those that will continue to struggle choked by past policy mistakes and changed mood in financial markets.
While the German government tackles State accounts, the private sector again displays great resilience and competitiveness in world markets.Once the government hits its main targets - doubtless it will - consumer confidence will rise boosting the German domestic market.
In any case the latest trade figures also indicate a relevant uptake in imports which confirms increased inputs from external suppliers going into German manufactures then shipped out.
Overall the figures are very encouraging and could mean a turning point in the fortunes of EU's economy pending confirmation in the months/years ahead.
Troubled and chronically deficit economies will have to find means and ways to re-balance themselves internally by a combination of actions long overdue anyway.
It will be most exciting to note which way the Eurozone heads for from here. Importantly, how it manages an economically divided house from within that got irresponsibly disguised during one full crazy decade of cheap credit.
To my mind the pressure on the weaker links of Eurozone has not alleviated.On the contrary, a sharpened contrast between two to three groups within the 16 should mean greater emphasis by countries in the wrong bag to pull themselves together and upwards.
Using every sensible tool and policy from government to public and private sector management.
A very tall order that may yet prove a blessing in disguise.
