French Manufacturing Sector Sentiment Declined in November

Sentiment in the French manufacturing sector fell in November amid lockdown restrictions.

Figures from the French national statistics agency's monthly survey on Tuesday showed manufacturing sentiment fell to 92 in November compared with a revised figure of 94 for October.

The reading is in line with economists' consensus forecast of 92 in a survey conducted by The Wall Street Journal.

Insee said sentiment declined across all sectors in November due to the fall lockdown, with the services sector and trade experiencing larger declines than manufacturing.
