PARIS (Reuters) – France expects economic growth of 8% for 2021, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Thursday.

The Mayor told the National Assembly that the government wants economic activity to return to pre-crisis levels from 2022.

He also said recent data was “satisfactory but too fragile” to alter forecasts of an 11% economic contraction this year.
