German Exports Fell in February Amid Euro-Area Recession

German exports fell more than economists forecast in February as the euro area, the country’s biggest trading partner, struggled to emerge from recession.

Exports, adjusted for working days and seasonal changes, dropped 1.5 percent from January, when they gained 1.3 percent, the Federal Statistics Office in Wiesbaden said today. Economists forecast a 0.3 percent decline, according to the median of 15 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey. Imports fell 3.8 percent.
