France Manufacturing PMI Disappoints
The IHS Markit France Manufacturing PMI fell to 50.3 in December of 2019 from 51.7 in November, well below market expectations of 51.5. The reading pointed to the slowest expansion in factory activity in three months, flash figures showed. In December, several unions including transportation went on strike to protest against a reform of France’s pension system, which will see people need to work longer to get a full pension. New work continued to decline; new business from abroad was little changed; and job growth was stable. On the price front, input prices continued to rise due to higher transport costs and elevated pork prices and output charges edged up. Finally, businesses remained optimistic towards the one-year outlook for output in December, supported by expectations for accelerated demand growth. The degree of positivity remained historically elevated but was weaker than November’s seven-month high.
