BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government has dropped its economic growth forecast for 2019 to 1.0 percent from 1.8 percent due to slower global economic growth and uncertainty about Britain's exit from the European Union, the Handelsblatt newspaper reported Thursday.

The newspaper said the ministry's new forecast, to be publicly released on Wednesday, calls for a recovery in 2020, when Germany's gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to expand by 1.6 percent.
