The Corona pandemic was accompanied by immense strains on the supply and demand side of the economy: Production processes were widely disrupted by missing workers and disrupted supply networks. Demand came to a standstill as a result of lockdowns – especially in the personal ser-vices sectors. With the continuing success of vaccination against Corona, consumption and exports returned to normal. However, global supply networks are still not running smoothly. Production and logistics are still affected by the pandemic. As a result, investment activity has failed to return to pre-crisis levels.
