The goal of spending two percent of economic output on defense is “a long way off and procurements that are necessary in the short term are not making any progress,” according to a study by the German Economic Institute (IW), as reported by the “Rheinische Post” (Monday edition). .

According to the report, the institute blames the recent price increases, delays in the procurement of equipment and the underfunding of the Bundeswehr in the financial planning of the regular federal budget.
