– The German defense budget has increased once again for fiscal year (FY) 2020. The German government and the Department of Defense (the Bundeswehr) have come under intense international scrutiny for failing to meet NATO’s requirement that at least 2% of national GDP is spent on defense.

– The Bundeswehr submitted a request to spend US$53.3 billion on defense, a 7.6% increase from FY2019. However, this number still falls short of the 2% target, instead merely representing 1.3% of Germany’s GDP.

– Whilst pledges have been made to reach 1.5% by 2024 and 2% by the 2030s, the international community, namely President Trump, is very dissatisfied at the amount being spent.
