French industrial output slid 0.7% in October from September, when it had plunged by 2.7 percent on a monthly basis, the national statistics agency INSEE said Monday.

In the manufacturing sector the decline was greater at 0.9 percent in October, after a 3.4 percent fall in September.

Industrial production was nearly stable on a three-month running basis, however.

Output in August to October dipped by only 0.1 percent from the May to July period, said INSEE.

Manufacturing showed a 0.1 percent gain for that period.
