Le Maire: Predictions for French economy still solid

French Economy and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire stated on Monday the forecast for the growth of his country's economy for 2022 is "still solid" despite the growing fears concerning the newly emerged variant of COVID-19.

Le Maire told France 2 the government is ready to help businesses and enterprises in case the new strain has a further negative effect on their businesses. He stressed the authorities will "always be there, in whatever circumstances, to protect employees and companies, companies we see as strategic." Le Maire also underlined the government will do everything in its power to avoid imposing new restrictions.

Earlier this month, the minister said there is no need to impose new measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 despite the latest spikes in new infections.
