The manufacturing climate indicator in France rose to 97 in February of 2021 from a downwardly revised 96 in January and compared to forecasts of 99. It was the highest reading since March but it remained below pre-pandemic levels and the long-term average of 100. The slight improvement mainly reflects the better opinion of manufacturers on their order books (-25 vs -29 in January) and their personal production prospects (10 vs 8), confirming the rebound following the exit from the second lockdown. Meanwhile, expectations regarding employment remained essentially unchanged (-8 vs -7). source: INSEE, France
