France to see worst post-war downturn this year: Minister


France will likely see its worst post-war economic downturn this year, far surpassing the -2.2 per centt slump seen in 2009 after the global financial crisis, its finance minister said on Monday.

“We will probably be at more than the -2.2 per cent in 2009. That’s shows the magnitude of the economic shock we are facing,” Le Maire told the Senate in hearing by teleconference.




The government estimated last month in an emergency budget update that the economy would contract 1% this year, but has since indicated that it would have to revise that figure.
