Stock Market in France
France - Stock MarketPresident Emmanuel Macron is pressing on with his sorely-needed economic reforms in the aftermath of a narrow loss at the European elections on 26 May, unveiling additional labor-market overhauls through mid-June. The economy has likewise proven resilient, stepping out from the long shadows cast by last year’s ‘gilets jaunes’ protests and Macron’s controversial Great Debate. First-quarter growth saw household spending bounce back as consumers grew more confident amid the shrinking demonstrations, the tightening labor market and falling inflation, while fixed investment remained upbeat on firms’ equipment-related outlays. Moreover, second-quarter indicators suggest that private-sector gains persisted into midyear: Economic sentiment was on the mend through May and survey-based data hints that operating conditions improved in recent months. Sluggish external demand—as witnessed by tepid export growth since the outset of the year—looks set to continue chipping away at the homegrown turnaround, however.
