PARIS (Reuters) - French statistics department INSEE revised up on Thursday the country’s 2018 gross domestic product growth to 1.7% from a previous 1.6%.

INSEE also revised the growth rate for 2017 to 2.4% from a previous 2.3% and lowered the growth rate for 2016 to 1 percent from 1.1%.

The new economic growth didn’t affect the county’s government deficit which remained at the equivalent to 2.5% of GDP in 2018 and 2.8% of GDP in 2017. The deficit of 2016 remained at 3.5% of GDP.
