Paris, Feb 11 — France's industrial production inched down by 0.1 percent in December 2012 from a month earlier, driven by falling refining activities, data released Monday by the national statistics bureau Insee showed.

France recorded a slight rise in manufacturing output by 0.1 percent on good performance of food processing business and construction activity that grew by 1.9 percent and 1.2 percent respectively, reported Xinhua.

As limp growth and poor demand still shadowed auto industry, manufacturing of transport equipment fell by 1.3 percent after it had risen by 5.4 percent in November.

Quarterly figures showed a 1.8-percent decline in the country's industrial production for the October-December period last year from the same period in 2011 with manufacturing output down by 2.5 percent.
