From construction crisis to interest rates

At least we have inflation back under control to some extent. However, the turnaround in interest rates and low demand are causing problems for some industries. Where do we stand at the end of 2023, what can we expect from 2024? And how can we deal with it?

In our webinar "Economy 2023/24: Where do we stand, where are we going?", Coface economist Christiane von Berg and Gracher Managing Director Alfons-Maria Gracher follow on from the successful webinar in March and give an overview of the current status and developments. The economist von Berg, known from n-tv, takes stock of the year so far and gives an outlook on what awaits us in 2024. In particular, it is keeping an eye on interest rate developments. And she takes a closer look at the construction industry and mechanical and plant engineering. Her macroeconomic analysis is supplemented by current practical experiences and insights from Alfons-Maria Gracher, founder of the largest credit and surety broker in Germany. This much can already be revealed: The picture is much more differentiated than in the headlines of many media.
