PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday he wanted the European Union to work towards levying an EU-wide digital tax on big tech multinationals.

Speaking in an interview on France’s TF1 broadcaster, Macron said he envisaged a digital tax, on a European-level, along the lines of a digital tax that France has said it plans to impose this year.
