  The German economy grew by 0.7% in 2012, a sharp slowdown on the previous year, preliminary figures show.


  The figure was well below the 3% growth seen in 2011 and suggests the economy contracted in the fourth quarter.

  "In 2012, the German economy proved to be in a difficult economic environment and withstood(抵挡) the European recession," the federal statistics office Destatis said.

  Some believe the German economy will enter recession itself.

  Destatis said economic activity "slowed down " in the second half of the year, and particularly in the final quarter.

  "The full-year growth figure [of 0.7%] implies a of around half a percentage point in the fourth quarter," the office's top statistician Norbert Raeth said.

  Last month, Germany's central bank, the Bundesbank, cut its growth forecast for this year to 0.4% and warned that the economy may have contracted in the final three months of 2012, and may do so again in first quarter of 2013.

  The eurozone economy as a whole is already in recession, having contracted in both in the third and fourth quarters of last year.

  Spending boost

  For 2012 as a whole, Destatis said foreign trade was "very ", with exports up 4.1% on 2011. Imports grew by 2.3%. The positive trade balance was "once again the main driving force for economic growth in Germany".

  Household increased by 0.8%, while government spending was up 1%.

  The figures also showed that while the service of the economy expanded, industry and construction contracted.

  Destatis will publish official fourth-quarter growth figures on 14 February.
