VDMA Chief Economist Dr. Ralph Wiechers on the new outlook for the world economy:

"Published today in Davos, the outlook is good news for mechanical engineers"

Industrial production remains dynamic, especially in the markets crucial to our industry, and world trade and investment activity are finally ramping up. All this is excellent for mechanical engineering.
