French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday held a meeting with representatives of the country’s banking sector to discuss socio-economic measures following mass riots across France, the Elysee Palace said.
At the meeting, the French president asked banks to support small businesses and entrepreneurs, who “have suffered most from the current crisis, blocked roads and destruction,” according to the presidential office.

Macron also urged the banking sector to undertake a number of specific measures, such as to refrain from increasing bank charges and fees for individuals in 2019.
