The new restrictive measures taken to fight the Covid-19 pandemic are leading the government to revise its growth, debt and deficit forecasts for France in 2021. The government now only expects growth of 5% in 2021, instead of the 6% hoped for so far, announced in the Journal du Dimanche Bruno Le Maire, the Minister of the Economy and Finance.
