France trimmed trade deficit to about 60 billion

By: | at 03:24 PM | International Trade  

France reduced its trade deficit to about 60 billion euros ($81.60 billion) last year from 67 billion euros in 2012, Trade Minister Nicole Bricq said.

Bricq said November trade data, due to be published later on Thursday, were “not good” because of a fall in aircraft deliveries, but she added that planemaker Airbus had good orders for the future.

“The trend for the year, and that’s what counts, will allow us to have a deficit of about 60 billion euros,” Bricq said on France Info radio. (Reuters)
