Summary:

In a favorable global conjuncture, France has benefitted from a broad-based recovery last year, with robust growth and improving labor market trends, which have led to a decline in the fiscal deficit below 3 percent of GDP last year. But structural challenges persist, with still high unemployment, weak competitiveness, and high private and public debt burdens, which are hampering economic performance.
