PARIS--French economic growth will likely accelerate in the fourth quarter from the third, a survey from the Bank of France showed Monday.
Gross domestic product will rise 0.4% in the fourth quarter from the third, according to the Bank of France's business activity survey in December. The second-largest eurozone economy grew a scant 0.2% in the third quarter.
Business sentiment in manufacturing inched up to 102 in December from 101 a month earlier, while the reading in construction was unchanged at 100 and business sentiment in services fell to 99 from 100.
