The spokesman for the French government, Gabriel Attal, announced this Saturday that the submission of the recovery plan planned for next Tuesday has been postponed by a week to September.
The aim is for the government to focus on sanitary conditions at the beginning of the school year, but this does not mean any delays in implementation as the plan is “ready” according to French public television.
Attal has therefore emphasized that “it appears that the timetable for the implementation of the recovery plan is being met”: the government’s aim is to restore the level of national prosperity before the crisis in 2022.
The measures to revitalize the French economy were due to be announced on Tuesday, August 25, but have been postponed to the week of August 31, “the day after I returned to school”. “First we have to ensure the appropriate organizational conditions” against Covid-19 in educational centers.
The € 100,000 million relief plan is eagerly awaited by companies in the sectors hardest hit by the coronavirus-induced crisis, especially given the potential for a second wave of infections.
