France Consumer & Retail Report Q4 2017

France Consumer & Retail Report Q4 2017

BMI View: Unemployment has continued to drop over the course of 2017 and will head lower in 2018,backing up our more positive outlook for the consumer. Economic growth, consumer confidence and retailsales are all showing encouraging signs that will continue to support higher growth levels. Rising inflationis also a minimal risk in our view, coming in at just 1% in 2017 and won't result in consumers being morecautious about purchasing decisions.

The election of Emmanuel Macron to the Presidency in May 2017 and the subsequent victory of his party inthe June 2017 parliamentary elections has improved the prospects for French consumer spending in 2017and over the course of our forecast period. Macron's ambitious reform agenda aims at reducing thegovernment's footprint in the economy and boosting France's limited competitiveness, with an emphasis onreducing unemployment and boosting consumer purchasing power.
