Taking a look at the new indicators first, Germany has added five new World Heritage sites since 2016, now boasting a total of 45. In 2017, the Caves and Ice Age Art in the Swabian Jura was added. In 2018 and 2019 Germany gained four new sites overall, the Archaeological Border complex of Hedeby and the Danevirke and the Naumburg Cathedral in 2018, the Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří Mining Region and Water Management System of Augsburg in 2019. The only other country equally gaining five new sites in the observed period was China.
Turning to the indicator of Chokepoints, Germany comes in tied for 12th place (together with Japan, Korea and Mexico), controlling two chokpoints – the second lowest number of chokepoints controlled among the G19 states. Looking at Total Reserves, all European G19 countries show increasing figures in this indicator. Germany’s Country Share increased from 1,49% to 1.67% in this regard.
Continuing with the well-established indicators. In terms of GDP (PPP), Germany ranks 5th, just behind Japan, India, China and the United States. Germany lost one company, now remaining with 27 among the Global 500, but gained one University, coming in at 12.
