East German industry was still regarded as a problem child in the early days of the economic reconstruction. To gain a deeper insight into the current situation, DIW Berlin has conducted a number of surveys among industrial companies, as part of its reportage for the German Government on the macroeconomic and enterprise adjustment processes in east Germany. The report shows that the situation of east German industry has continued to improve very markedly. Companies are increasingly succeeding in gaining foothold in markets outside their regions. There have been big increases in turnover, particularly in the export business. The high growth rates in production that have been achieved in recent years show that east German industry has made great progress in improving its competitiveness. As it becomes more integrated in the national division of labor, east German industry is naturally increasingly affected by the general cyclical situation has continued to improve strongly. And despite the great progress that has been made in building up a new industrial base the present one is still too small. INSET: The Company Survey by DIW Berlin.
