France has proposed Sylvie Goulard, the deputy governor of the Bank of France and a former European lawmaker, as its candidate for European Union commissioner, a French diplomatic source told Reuters on Wednesday.

The move comes with President Emmanuel Macron’s government looking to clinch a top portfolio such as trade or climate.
