(ANSA-AFP) - FRANKFURT AM MAIN, 25 GIU - The mood among German consumers is brightening further as the country emerges from months of coronavirus lockdown, pollsters GfK said Thursday, but still has ground to make up on the pre-pandemic world. "Rapid reopening of the economy and society in Germany is helping consumers get over the corona shock more and more," GfK said, as its monthly forward-looking barometer predicted -9.6 points for July, up nine points on this month. The measure had fallen as low as -23.1 points, an all-time low, in May. Not only reopening, but "extensive aid from government stimulus programmes including reduced VAT" in the second half of the year is helping lift spirits, according to GfK expert Rolf Buerkl.
