10 giugno (Reuters) - French industrial output rose 2.2
percent in April from March, beating economists' expectations,
data from the INSEE statistics agency showed on Monday. 
    The reading was well ahead of a Reuters poll of 19 
economists' forecast on average for an increase of 0.3 percent. 
Expectations ranged from -0.3 percent to 0.8 percent. 
    The increase was driven by activity in metalworking, 
carmaking, chemicals and the textile industries.
