German business sentiment clouds over in June

BERLIN, June 23 (Reuters) - German business morale fell more than expected in June, as rising energy prices and the threat of gas shortages unsettled businesses in Europe's largest economy, a survey showed on Friday.

The Ifo institute said its business climax index dropped to 92.3 following a reading of 93.0 in May, when the closely watched indicator posted a surprise recovery despite the economic impact of the Russia-Ukraine war.
