Le Maire: French economy to return to pre-crisis level by year's end

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire insisted on Monday that the country's economy should return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of the year. Commenting on the economic growth, Le Maire estimated the French gross domestic product would expand by 6% in 2021.

The economy is "doing well" thanks to the increase in consumer spending despite the coronavirus-related restriction measures, Le Maire noted, pointing out that there was a 5% growth in consumer spending during the first two weeks of August.
