* Slow Economic Recovery or Double-Dip Recession? The global economic prospects in 2010
After a sharp and synchronized global downturn, United Nations economists expect the world economy to bounce back with a mild 2.4 per cent growth in 2010.

The liberal FDP, the main winner of the elections had put forward the demand of doing away with an independent development ministry in its election campaign. Bodo Ellmers reports
