Ukraine War: Measure to Compensate Increasing Price

The Prime Minister, Jean Castex, presented a resilience plan to deal with the economic consequences of the war in Ukraine. Specific aid is planned for fishermen, farmers, construction companies and heavy industries.

Castex recalled the ambition to do without Russian gas and oil in 2027 and insisted on the imperative of securing supply of France in gas for next winter. To this end, the government will subsidize companies to help them depend less on certain critical raw materials from Russia such as titanium, palladium or even neon, announced Bruno Le Maire.
