European stock index futures rise, data in focus

LONDON, July 1 (Reuters) - European stock index futures pointed to a stronger open for equities on Friday, after shares hit a near-one month high a day earlier, with focus likely to be on manufacturing data from both sides of the Atlantic for clues on the health of the economy.

By 0608 GMT, futures for the Euro STOXX 50 STXEc1, for Germany's DAX FDXc1 and for France's CAC FCEc1 were up 0.1 to 0.2 percent.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index closed 1.1 percent higher at 1,110.97 points on Thursday, its highest close since June 3 after Greece's parliament passed a final vote on austerity measures.
