German exports to fall by 15% in 2020 - DIHK

BERLIN, July 8 (Reuters) - German exports will drop by 15% this year and will only recover slightly in 2021, Germany's DIHK chambers of commerce said on Wednesday.

Exports will rise by a single-digit percentage next year, by 7% if the situation improves significantly, DIHK foreign trade head Volker Treier said.

"We will only experience disappointments in the next few months," Treier said. (Reporting by Christian Kraemer; Writing by Riham Alkousaa; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
