PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday renewed his calls for France to have sovereignty in the areas of healthcare and industry, as the country steps up plans to deal with a likely second wave of the COVID-19 virus.

“We need to relocalise and re-create our capacity of production on our own territory. Healthcare and industrial sovereignty will be one of the key pillars of our economic recovery plan,” Macron wrote on Twitter, as he visited a site of French pharmaceutical group Seqens.
