German factory orders dropped in November, dragged down by a fall in demand from other eurozone countries.
The Economy Ministry said Monday that overall orders were 1 percent lower than in the previous month following a slight 0.2 percent gain in October.
The figure includes an 11.6 percent drop in orders from elsewhere in the 19-nation eurozone, which more than cancelled out a 7.4 percent gain a month earlier. Orders from inside Germany were up 2.4 percent, and those from outside the eurozone rose 2.3 percent.
