The eurozone climbed out of recession at last with better-than-expected growth of 0.3 percent in the second quarter led by Germany and France, the European Union said on Wednesday.



Data agency Eurostat said the 18-month downturn which has cost millions of jobs and crushed debt-laden governments around the single currency area ended thanks in large part to better-than-expected gains of 0.7 percent in Germany and 0.5 percent in France.
