Merkel warns of difficult economic times ahead

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warns of difficult economic times for the coming year in her New Year's television speech.
The chancellor said 2010 would be "a crucial year" in deciding how Germany will emerge from the global economic crisis.
Merkel says the economic crisis won't be over quickly and may even be "more difficult in the new year before they will eventually improve again."
She said the government "will do everything to create growth .... and secure jobs."
Merkel's manuscript was released Thursday, hours before German broadcast stations were to air her speech on radio and TV.
