BERLIN (Reuters) – The German economy will grow slower than expected this year as supply chain problems and shortages of raw materials keep a lid on the industrial recovery, but it should rebound strongly next year, the DIW economic institute said on Thursday.

DIW cut its growth forecast to 2.1% this year from 3.2%. But it projected a rise of 4.9% for 2022 in case production constraints ease. In 2023, it expects to see growth at 1.5%.
