Emmanuel Macron presents his wishes to the French on Thursday at 8 p.m. at the end of a particularly trying year, marked by an unprecedented epidemic that will continue to shake up the presidential agenda in 2021.
After a particularly trying year 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, President Emmanuel Macron addresses the French during the traditional address for the end of the year greetings.
The president wants to regain control after a year 2020 swept by a “historic pandemic, international crises, terrorism, divisions in society and an unprecedented economic and social crisis”, in his own words.
The Head of State will have “a message of truth and transparency over an extremely difficult year for the country,” said government spokesman Gabriel Attal. Emmanuel Macron should “give perspectives on the future” with “the arrival of the vaccine” and “our economy which must restart”, as well as a “message of unity”, he specifies.
2021 will be a year of “results”, “concrete actions” and “pursuit of the reform agenda”, promises the Elysee. “What our fellow citizens expect from us for the year 2021 is to make it a useful year of struggle, recovery and ambition,” said Emmanuel Macron, himself suffering from Covid-19, at last Council of Ministers, December 21.
