The French economy will grow 0.3% quarter on quarter at the start of the year, a Bank of France survey showed Wednesday, MarketWatch reported. Growth at 0.3% would extend the steady uptick in the eurozone’s second-largest economy that began at the end of last year. Business leaders across sectors expect activity to rise in February, the Bank of France said in its monthly survey. The survey showed a slight softening of business sentiment in January. In services, business sentiment fell one point to 100, the long-term average for the indicator. In manufacturing, sentiment fell to 101 from 102.
