Will Angela Merkel Agree With Emmanuel Macron?
French President Emmanuel Macron’s adviser said France was determined to reach consensus with Germany on a common approach on proposals for a Eurozone budget and stabilizing fund by June. Specifically, the adviser stated: "Our conversations with Germany lead us to be more confident than not". Emmanuel Macron wants German Chancellor Angela Merkel to be brave and refrain from her fiscal conservatism, as, in his opinion, that’s exactly what interferes with the progress in the bloc.
If Germany does agree with France, the two are yet to convince other EU members. For example, the Netherlands, Finland and several other members said Macron’s methods were a little too extreme.
