PRAGUE (Reuters) - Low government bond yields and a falling oil price create a situation that can be used to help support economic growth, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Tuesday.

“This maybe offers a situation that will allow us to support growth,” Valls said, speaking through an interpreter at the start of a Czech-French economic forum in Prague.

“The global situation should improve in 2015 and 2016, and (this should) improve the economic situation in France.”
