PARIS, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Francois Villeroy de Galhau, the governor of the Bank of France and a member of the European Central Bank (ECB), told France Inter radio on Monday that any positive economic effects from COVID-19 vaccines would not be felt until the end of 2021.

The Bank of France forecast earlier on Monday that the French economy will rebound next year as coronavirus restrictions are lifted, although not as fast as previously expected.
