PARIS, June 10 (Reuters) - PARIS, June 10 (Reuters) - French
industrial production rebounded by 1.2 percent in April from
March, beating even the highest expectations, figures from the
INSEE official statistics
agency showed on Friday.
    A Reuters poll of 24 economists had an average forecast of
0.4 percent with estimates ranging from -0.5 to 0.9 percent.
    The increase, coming after a slightly worse dip than
initially reported in March, was boosted by a 4.5 percent jump
in transport material production and a 3 percent rise in car
production, INSEE said.
    The following are the main figures given by INSEE
(percentage changes). 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
