Amid the continuing coronavirus crisis, French metals lobby has expressed interest in resuming operations by conforming to higher sanitary conditions even as the country awaits the government’s decision on whether the lockdown will be extended further. Later today, French President Emmanuel Macron is widely expected to make an announcement about a possible extension to the present lockdown which is scheduled to end on April 15.

The first lockdown has already caused industries to down their shutters for a period of 24 days, causing severe losses in output and revenues across automotive, steel, aeronautics and several other industries. In a recent interview with Le Parisien, president of the union of metals industry and businesses (UIMM), Philippe Darmayan highlights the growing risk of bankruptcies in the sector on account of the lockdown.

According to Darmayaan, “We will need a recovery plan…so that we can see clearly. It must be built quickly. Let us not add an economic and social drama to the health catastrophe.”
