PARIS, May 10 (Reuters) - French industrial production fell 0.3 percent in March from
February, falling short of expectations, figures from the INSEE official statistics agency
showed on Tuesday.
    A Reuters poll of 21 economists had an average forecast of +0.5 percent with estimates
ranging from 0.0 to 2.4 percent. 
    In a separate survey of executives in the French manufacturing industry, INSEE said
businesses expected to increase investment by 7 percent this year, the same increase they had
expected the last time INSEE polled them in January. 
    The following are the main figures given by INSEE (percentage changes) for industrial
production. The year-on-year figures compare the last three months with same period a year
earlier and three-month figures compare the last three months with preceding three months.
