France - Current Account (billions of Euros)

According to preliminary estimates, GDP growth slowed in quarter-on-quarter terms in Q1 due to muted expansions in private consumption and fixed investment. Survey-based data from the second quarter has been somewhat disappointing, likely influenced in part by rolling labor union protests since late March over government efforts to reform the SNCF, the state-run train operator. In May, the composite PMI dropped to its lowest level in almost a year and a half, while business confidence stabilized at an almost one-year low. However, despite downbeat data, the economy is in good shape: Unemployment declined to a new multi-year low in March, while the implementation of reforms and the government’s commitment to reining in fiscal spending to comply with EU fiscal responsibility rules led Moody’s to upgrade the country’s credit outlook to “positive” in early May. The controversial SNCF reform bill made its way to the senate on 23 May, where it is expected to be voted into law on 5 June.
