France's Le Maire keeps 5% economic growth forecast for 2021

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Tuesday he was keeping his 5% economic growth forecast for 2021, because of the risk of a resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the new Delta variant.

“I maintain the 5% growth forecast,” Le Maire told CNews TV, adding he did not want to increase it due to that risk. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Sudip Kar-Gupta)
