PARIS, Oct 19 (Reuters) - France's economy should be back to pre-COVID growth levels by the end of the year, Bank of France governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Tuesday, as energy prices jumped worldwide on the strength of the post-pandemic recovery.

Villeroy, who is a member of the ECB's governing council, told France Info radio that some French companies were highlighting difficulties in hiring staff.
