Industrial output in Germany grew by less than expected in September, adding to concerns over the state of its economy.

Industrial output grew by 1.4% in September, compared with expectations of 2%. But it is vastly improved on the 3.1% drop in August.

Manufacturing grew by 1.7%, but construction was down 1.2%.

There was much better news for the German trade market. Exports were up 5.5% after a 5.8% drop in August, the largest fall for five years. Imports were also up 5.4%.

Germany's economy started the year strongly, but growing problems across the eurozone have subdued investment. Many analysts believed that the German economy could've slipped into recession in the third quarter.

The recession is over. It's time to grow!
