The government of France decided to suspend the tax increment on fuel which was planned. The said step comes when faced with “violent protests”. However, the Finance Minister of France, Bruno Le Maire informed that this suspension will not jeopardise the government’s budget commitments.
 
In the words of Le Maire, who spoke in Brussels during a meeting of the European Union Finance Ministers:
“The president has set a course focused on respect of our European commitments, reducing spending, debt and taxes. We will stay the course”.
