PARIS, Jan 11 (Reuters) - French transport minister Elisabeth Borne said she would meet with motorways operators on Monday to discuss ways to help consumers’ spending power, as anti-government protests continue.
“I am asking them to take into account the concerns of the French people over their spending power. I am seeing them on Monday and we will look at their proposals together,” Borne told Europe 1 radio on Friday.
French motorway operator Sanef said earlier this week it was working on proposals to cushion the impact on drivers of a planned hike in toll charges, following a government request as nationwide protests over high living costs continue.
