The government of Edouard Philippe had mobilized considerable sums - almost 500 billion euros in total - to avoid a total collapse of the economy. He was working on a major stimulus package which he was to present at the end of the summer. 

Jean Castex's government will henceforth be responsible for taking up this important dossier. This recovery plan will be integrated into the next budget, that of 2021. In this future finance law, "rebound spending will be integrated into an ad hoc mission , with a temporary vocation", specifies the preparatory report, made public by Bercy Friday. 

We will find there the expenses linked to the future long-term partial unemployment scheme but also the financing of specific measures such as thermal renovation or aid to certain sectors of the future, such as hydrogen or recycling for example.
