PARIS (Reuters) – The French economy is “doing well” thanks to a rise in consumer spending and even in spite of restrictions still in place to tackle the coronavirus, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Monday.

Le Maire told France 2 television the aim now was for France to return to pre-COVID economic growth levels by end 2021.

France has a 6% growth target for the whole of 2021, which Le Maire reiterated.
