German company Siemens' medical engineering group reported turnover of DM 3,300 million ($2,200 million), in the first half of 1996, an increase of 4%.

Siemens' group turnover rose 6% to DM 42,300 million, primarily due to a 14% surge in international business. German sales declined 5% to DM 16,900 million.
