(dpa) - German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder is gesturing during his eagerly awaited parliamentary speech in the Bundestag, the lower house of German parliament, in Berlin, 14 March 2003. In his speech, the Schroeder had called for a 'massive joint effort' to revive the country's huge but flagging economy. Every sector of society would have to make its contribution, he told parliament in the speech intended to lay out his ideas for economic reform. German unemployment has soared as high as 4.7 million and, at more than 11 per cent, its jobless rate is among the highest in Europe. Schroeder's speech was announced as initiating great reforms but disappointed many.
