BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany needs a strong France and has an interest in the success of President Emmanuel Macron's economic reforms, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday.

"For us a strong France consequently helps push Europe forward and that's why I have a maximum interest in the success of President Emmanuel Macron," said Merkel.

Macron's government has lined up several tax cuts taking effect in the coming months that should boost disposable income.
