Berlin’s economy back on the road to success
The Berlin economy was able to recover from the consequences of the pandemic in 2021 and is back on a growth course. While the gross domestic product fell to -3.3 % in 2020 (Germany -4.9 %), Berlin recorded GDP growth of 3.3 % in 2021 and was therefore again above the German average of +2.9 %. The number of people in employment also increased by 1.1 % compared to the previous year. This puts Berlin in first place nationwide.
