The ifo Institute has warned of a drastic drop in regional subsidies in Germany. "If existing rules continue to apply, Germany will only be able to grant regional subsidies on a small scale,” explains Joachim Ragnitz, Deputy Executive Director of ifo Dresden.

Regions qualify for subsidies depending on their economic power and unemployment rates compared to the EU average.
