Surveys of purchasing managers' plans in the eurozone, Germany and France all indicated steady growth, if not perhaps as much as some economists had expected.Germany's composite index, for example, was down 1.3 points – from a six-year high – to a still solid 56.1 .So the fact that there was a jump from minus 3.3 points in May to the highest level in 16 years was seen as a bullish sign.Other data Friday, however, showed that the eurozone economy is not without its risks.The International Monetary Fund projects Italy's economy to grow 1.3 percent this year because of the general eurozone growth picture, but to slow next year.
