France supports Spanish candidate to head Eurogroup of finance ministers | News


PARIS (Reuters) – France will support Spanish Minister of Economy Nadia Calvino for the presidency of the Eurogroup of euro area finance ministers, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Thursday.

“We support Nadia Calvino because she showed her skills at Eurogroup meetings in recent months, and we support her because we share with Spain the same desire to strengthen the integration of the euro zone” Le Maire told reporters.

Eurozone finance ministers are expected to vote Thursday evening on the group’s presidency, for which Pascal Donohoe of Ireland and Pierre Gramegna of Luxembourg are also candidates.
