According to media reports, France’s central bank, the Banque de France (BdF), cut its economic growth forecast for the second quarter of this year to 0.2% from a previously estimated growth rate of 0.3%.

The bank cited weaker industrial production as the main reason behind their downwardly revised growth estimate for the April- June period. In May, France’s industrial output fell 0.9% on the month after declining 0.3% in the previous month.

Meanwhile, the bank expects the French economy to grow by 1.2% this year, up from the government’s growth estimate of 1%. For 2016 and 2017, the BdF predicts that the economy will expand by 1.8% and 1.9%, respectively.
