Frankrig er et af de hårdest ramte lande i Europa på grund af coronaen. Centralbanken sagde i dag, at økonomien formentlig faldt med 4 pct. i 4. kvartal. Det betyder, at økonomien faldt med 9 pct. for hele året.
French economy contracted 4% in Q4 -central bank
The French economy probably contracted 4% in the final quarter of last year from the previous three months although activity picked up in December after a coronavirus lockdown was lifted, the French central bank said on Wednesday.
In light of the fourth quarter performance, the Bank of France said it was sticking with a previous estimate that the euro zone’s second-biggest economy shrank 9% over the course of last year.
The central bank also estimated the economy was operating this month down 7% from pre-crisis levels, unchanged from December but up from -11% in November when the country was under its second coronavirus lockdown.
