France's Macron calls for more European investment in Greece

French President Emmanuel Macron has called for more European investment to help Greece pay back its debt without having to rely on countries like China.

Privatisation of state assets has been a priority of Greece’s bailouts since 2010, but political foot-dragging and a highly unionised public sector workforce have slowed progress.
