French Feb Foreign Trade Deficit at EUR6 Billion

04/09/2013 | 03:17am US/Eastern

PARIS--France's foreign trade balance deficit narrowed in February, despite a fall in exports, French customs data released Tuesday show.

The foreign trade shortfall in the euro zone's second-largest economy shrank to 6 billion euros ($7.8 billion) from EUR6.5 billion in the same month of last year, customs data show, with EUR35.8 billion of exports and EUR41.8 billion of imports.

Exports suffered from a seasonal fall in deliveries in the airplane and space industry, while levels of car exports remained low.

The foreign trade deficit for 2012 was revised down to EUR67.5 billion, narrower than previously thought.
