French Q2 growth revised upwards to 0.3pc

The French economy grew by 0.3 percent in the second quarter, the national statistics office Insee said Thursday, revising upwards an earlier estimate of 0.2 percent.

The revised figure, which takes account of seasonal adjustments, puts growth in the April-June period in line with the first quarter, despite a slowdown in household spending.
