BERLIN (Reuters) - A weak phase in the German industrial sector is not over yet but it is likely to reach turning point soon, the German economy ministry said on Wednesday, citing positive signals from orders and business expectations.

It said there were initial signs of hope at the start of the year but warned that prospects for German exports remained subdued.
