French Services Sector Growth Quickens in December
The IHS Markit France Services PMI rose to 52.4 in December 2019 from 52.2 in the previous month, unchanged from the preliminary reading. Both output and new orders grew solidly. In addition, export orders rose for the third consecutive month. Also, employment continued to grow, extending the current run of workforce expansion to three years. On the price front, input prices rose markedly, mainly linked to higher average wages. Also, the rate of charge inflation accelerated marginally, as firms opted to pass on some of the higher costs to their clients. Looking ahead, firms expected a rise in business activity in 2020, supported by greater demand but the degree of positivism was the weakest since August. 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.
