Is the end in sight for the recession?

France and Germany see growth, US economy shrinking less rapidly and UK bike dealers see sales rise

The surprising news follows improving sales figures for the majority of bike dealers in the UK.

Both Germany and France saw Q2 growth of 0.3 per cent, bucking the expectations of financial analysts and leading Jörg Krämer, an economist at Commerzbank in Frankfurt, to confidently state: “The recession has ended. Not just in Germany.”

The growth has led to financial pundits revising their forecasts on the continent, with many predicting continued growth over the coming months.
