Berlin: Germany is clearly losing its attractiveness in an international comparison. This is the result of a study by the ZEW economic research institute for the Family Business Foundation. Of the 21 industrial nations examined, it has recently slipped three places to 17th place and is thus worse off than ever. The USA, Great Britain and the Netherlands are at the forefront. The foundation board member Kirchdörfer said that Germany had to become more competitive. In this context, he referred to comparatively high taxes and energy costs and an often inadequate infrastructure.
