France cars registrations

France cars registrations reported up 11% in November pulled up by Renault and Peugeot performances on top of the list. The Peugeot 208 gained the first place among models while Renault Kadjar advanced in 11th.

Economic Outlook

France’s economy expanded a modest 0.3% over the previous quarter in Q3, which came in above the flat growth seen in Q2. The third quarter’s acceleration came on the back of stronger domestic demand, which more than offset a negative contribution from the external sector.

Following the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris on the evening of 13 November, President François Hollande declared a national state of emergency. The Parliament voted to extend the state of emergency, which expands executive power, for 3 months on 19 November. Moreover, the government decided to immediately intensify its military campaign against ISIL in Iraq and Syria and reinforce interior security with the reestablishment of border controls. 5000 new police posts are set to be created over the next two years.

The government also plans deep legal changes in order to give more tools to France’s intelligence and counter-terrorism organizations, with discussions about constitutional reforms forthcoming. Drastic increases in defense expenses will impact the state’s 2016 budget, which had previously been blessed by the European Commission.

The budget will now likely breach previously announced objectives, although the EC showed its understanding and stated that it would likely allow for budget flexibility due to these unforeseen circumstances.
