Germany is a favored destination for tourists as well as refugees escaping economic hardship and war.
Since the Syrian war broke out in 2011 hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have moved to Germany and other European countries. While seen as a burden to Europe in Germany the refugees are considered a demographic blessing. For the Syrians Germany is a welcoming nation that will provide them with jobs, housing and education.
It remains to be seen how the German Government refugee policy will translate into faster economic growth. It will take a number of years for full integration of the largely Muslim refugees into German society.
