Emmanuel Macron will first have to face the failures of companies, numbering 53,600 in 2020, and more than 64,300 in 2021, according to forecasts. Many of them have been granted loans by the state and are entitled to partial unemployment. “If the recovery plan is effective, we will bounce back immediately and quickly“, estimates François Asselin, president of the Conference of SMEs.
Unemployment could for its part exceed the 11% mark at the start of 2021. The majority know they are eagerly awaited on this subject. In this context, the French saved a lot in 2020, nearly 130 billion euros. Savings are expected to reach 200 billion euros at the end of 2021.
