Population in France
France - PopulationIncoming data suggests the country’s recession deepened in the second quarter, after the economy contracted at the sharpest rate on record in the first quarter. Amid social distancing measures and the suspension of non-essential activities, the unemployment rate rose to an over one-year high in April, while household and capital spending are set to have plunged as hinted by a marked deterioration in business and consumer sentiment in Q2. Moreover, industrial production plummeted in April and merchandise exports fell by nearly half in the same month, while the collapse in international travel is hammering the important tourism sector. On a brighter note, the composite PMI returned to positive territory in June as easing restrictions and the reopening of most European borders stoked sentiment among manufacturers and service providers. That said, demand conditions remain dire and employment metrics continue to worsen.
