PARIS (Reuters) - France’s trade deficit widened to stand at 5.2 billion euros (£4.7 billion) in June, compared to 3.3 billion euros in May, due to a decline in the level of exports, according to official data published on Wednesday.

The widening in the deficit follows data last month which showed that France, the euro zone’s second-biggest economy, had suffered a slight slowdown in economic growth during the second quarter.
