“With the (Covid) crisis we are going to lose more or less 100 billion euros of wealth and with that we have an unemployment rate skyrocketing,” he told RTL Radio Thursday morning.
“We want to inject massive amounts of money into the economy so that the economy and business activity pick up. If companies start up again, there is less unemployment. There are more jobs. It's as simple as that.”
The details of the stimulus plan will be announced in a news conference later on Thursday after a cabinet meeting.
