The resourcefulness, flexibility and independence of Berliners and the city’s expatriate community have kept it afloat during the recession, it has been reported.
According to Expatica, Berlin differs from other expat hubs, such as Hamburg or Frankfurt, that specialise in trade and finance, because its major industry is government.
Christian Dreger, an economist at the German Institute for Economic Research, told the website: "While we had huge declines in German exports, which contributed to the decline of Germany’s GDP growth rate, in Berlin this negative effect is smaller."
The migrant news service suggests many Berlin expats will flourish despite the economic downturn, offering the example of a language school run by a British-born businessman, who looked to smaller firms rather than multinational companies for clients and remained less vulnerable to market changes.
Despite this positivity, the findings of a recent survey suggests Germans are still regarded in a negative light by many Britons.
Published by OnePoll, the survey of 3,000 UK tourists named Germany as the second most unfriendly country in Europe after France.
