STRASBOURG: EU economics affairs commissioner Pierre Moscovici on Tuesday said Brussels will closely monitor France's new spending plans, a day after President Emmanuel Macron unveiled new measures to quell violent protests.

"The European Commission will closely monitor the impact of the announcements made by President Macron on the French deficit and any financing arrangements," Moscovici told AFP.

"We are in constant contact with the French authorities," added Moscovici, who was attending a plenary session of European Parliament in Strasbourg.
