French President Emmanuel Macron is reshuffling the government to focus on rebuilding the economy after months of a quarantine imposed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Many members of the government are expected to be replaced during the reshuffle.

Earlier, Macron said he seeks to open a new chapter before he resigns and now focuses on efforts to rebuild the French economy hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis.
