Latest data released by INSEE - 24 April 2019

  • Prior 104; revised to 105
  • Manufacturing confidence 101 vs 102 expected
  • Prior 102; revised to 103

Business confidence holds steady following the upward revision to the March data, meanwhile manufacturing and industrial confidence slips slightly compared to the previous month. There isn't much to really gather from the report here as it highlights that confidence levels in France remains off the highs from last year but isn't exactly deteriorating at a pace that warrants recession-like worries just yet.
