French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Thursday welcomed a new German recovery plan and said that a French one would be ready in the coming weeks.

Le Maire said in a joint news conference with German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier “That is good news for Germany, that is good also for France and all European countries because we need this recovery being active in all EU member states as soon as possible.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling coalition on Wednesday agreed a stimulus package worth 130 billion euros to speed up Germany’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
