Emmanuel Macron kept Bruno Le Maire as his finance minister, placing an old-hand on the frontlines of economic battles that will shape his second term as French President.

“My priorities: employment, industrial sovereignty and fighting inflation,” Le Maire said in a Tweet, thanking Macron and Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne for the re-appointment.
