France, Germany making progress on euro zone roadmap - French minister

PARIS, June 11 (Reuters) - France and Germany are making progress on drawing up a joint roadmap for euro zone reform due later this month, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel aim to present their reform proposal at a European Union summit on June 27-28, but differences remain on a euro zone investment fund and joint bank deposit insurance.

“We are on the right path. It’s long and difficult, it takes a lot of time and determination ... But I think we are making progress towards reaching a Franco-German agreement on the roadmap for euro zone’s future,” Le Maire told a conference in Paris.
