Trade Balance in France
France - Trade Balance (Euros)GDP growth stagnated in quarter-on-quarter terms in Q1 due to a contraction in private spending. Turning to Q2, the war in Ukraine is taking a toll on the economy: Record-high inflation and subdued consumer confidence in April is likely to keep a lid on household consumption. Similarly, business confidence moderated further in May. That said, the composite PMI rose to a four-year high in April and remained upbeat in May, bolstered by the loosening of pandemic-related restrictions. In politics, Emmanuel Macron appointed Élisabeth Borne as the prime minister on 16 May after a cabinet reshuffle. Lastly, in a recent report, the European Commission said that France had successfully managed the pandemic crisis, but had strained public finances as a result. In order to ensure sustainability of public finances, the Commission recommended that France simplifies its pension system.
