The French economy is expected to grow by 0.5 percent in the first three months of this year.

That is according to the latest forecast from economists at the Bank of France.

They base that on an upturn in industrial activity at the start of the year – particularly sales of cars as people rushed to take advantage of the government’s car scrapping subsidy before its gradual removal.
