Survey - Focus on Europe

Survey - Focus on Europe

Published: 07 April 2014

Results of a representative survey commissioned by the Association of German Banks ahead of the 20th German Banking Congress 2014.

European solidarity with the debt-laden eurozone countries in the form of loans and financial aid has not led in Germany to a negatively connoted “paymaster” image again. On the contrary, since 2010 the impression that Germany benefits from EU membership has grown steadily among citizens (from 23 to 35%), whereas the proportion of those who fear mostly disadvantages for the country has declined noticeably (from 29 to 19%). In addition, 87% believe that the EU is either “important” (54%) or “very important” (33%) for Germany’s
economic development.
