Published on 30 Jun 2016
The French president has pledged to implement a tax cut of up to €2 billion in the next year to help middle-class households. François Hollande told the Les Echos newspaper that the country would still be able to meet its EU-mandated budget deficit target of 2.7 percent next year. Also, US President Obama says the UK vote to leave the EU raises “longer-term” concerns for global economic growth.
