The IHS Markit France Composite PMI advanced to 52.9 in August 2019 from 51.9 in the previous month, higher than a flash estimate and market forecasts of 52.7, final data showed. The solid expansion in the private sector was supported by manufacturers which registered a rebound in output and by service providers recording the quickest growth in nine months. New orders went up solidly and at the steepest pace since November last year, driven by foreign demand. Private sector businesses in France continued to increase their staff numbers in August, extending the current run of workforce expansion to 34 months. The rate of job creation was little-changed from July, as a return to employment growth in manufacturing roughly offset a slower increase at services firms. Finally, business confidence was weaker than in July, but remained stronger than the 34-month low recorded in June. Service providers were more optimistic than their manufacturing counterparts. Composite Pmi in France is reported by Markit Economics.
