Growth was slightly better than expected in 2018: 1.7 instead of 1.6 (INSEE)



Exports are rising faster than INSEE has previously estimated, with an increase of + 3.5% in 2018.

This has prompted the statistical office to revise GDP growth last year from + 1.6% to + 1.7%, which was little affected by the rail strike and the yellow jacket crisis.

While INSEE estimates the growth of 1.6% last year, the institute has revised its calculations and now calculates that the country's GDP grew by 1.7% in 2018.
