The French have decided to give President Macron a second term of office. This webinar discusses what Macron's domestic and economic priorities will be; how far he could push 'European strategic autonomy', in areas such as defence, energy and advanced technologies; and which line he will want the EU to take on the US, China – and indeed Russia – amongst other questions.
