French Economy Minister pledges love, reforms, to business leaders| Reuters

JOUY-EN-JOSAS, France France's Socialist government will keep making changes aimed at helping businesses until the end of its mandate in 2017, Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday, pledging both "love" and "demonstrations of love." One year after Prime Minister Manuel Valls told the annual conference of French employers' organisation Medef that he "loves business," Macron told Medef that the government had shown this was not just words, listing steps to boost investment and cut corporate tax. "There is love, and there are demonstrations of love," the former banker turned Socialist economy minister said. He did not, however, announce any new reforms. #United States #Technology #France #Middle East #Europe #opinion

LONDON Illegal migrants found working in Britain will face jail and have their earnings seized under new measures announced by the government on Tuesday. The government has been ramping up its anti-immigration rhetoric in response to a spike in migrant attempts to reach Britain via the Channel Tunnel in France and is under pressure to show it is acting to deal with the crisis. Natacha Bouchart, mayor of the northern French port city of Calais where thousands of migrants are camped in the hope of crossing to Britain, has previously said Britain's generous welfare system and lax identity controls make it a magnet for illegal migrants. #Technology #France #science #Europe #markets
