On Macron's first official visit to Berlin just 24 hours after being inaugurated, both leaders on Monday expressed their commitment to do everything they can to improve the rapport between the two capitals to, in Macron's words, achieve an "historic new foundation" for the EU, Efe news reported.
On Tuesday, he and Philippe had been expected to finalize and announce a government which Macron says will bridge France's entrenched left-right divide and breathe new life into the country's jaded political landscape.
Government spokesman Christophe Castaner said that Macron had expressed his happiness at having brought together a diverse government with politicians from right and left as well as figures from civil society.
Hulot, who has previously turned down such offers, had "decided to go for it", provided certain conditions were met, the source said.
In turn, Merkel said she is open to a Macron proposal to create a level playing field between European Union countries and other Global trade partners.

En la conferencia de prensa, Trump también rechazó las insinuaciones sobre cargos penales o un juicio político. Trump despidió sorpresivamente a Comey la semana pasada, lo que aumentó las críticas en su contra.
But Macron's office said the government line-up would not be unveiled until 3:00pm (1300 GMT) on Wednesday. He said the EU should react more quickly to these violations and impose higher tariffs against foreign companies that dump their goods onto European markets.
At the press conference with Merkel, he said he would have a "heavy task", but that his agenda would be to reach economic, social and education reforms.
But another survey sounded a cautionary note, finding that only 45 percent of voters had confidence in Macron and even fewer in Prime Minister Edouard Philippe - the lowest ratings for French leaders starting their terms in over 20 years.
An OpinionWay/ORPI poll found Macron's Republic on the Move (REM) set to win 27 percent of votes in the first round of the National Assembly election on June 11, ahead of all other parties.
Among the people tipped for cabinet jobs are conservative ex-agriculture minister Bruno Le Maire, centrist MEP Sylvie Goulard, Lyon's Socialist Mayor Gerard Collomb and popular outgoing Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. To that end, Nicolas Hulot, a well-known environmentalist, was named as ecology minister.

Merkel warmly welcomed the fourth president to occupy the Elysee Palace since she came to power 12 years ago.
French President Macron said: "In the past the subject of treaty change was a French taboo".
Mr Macron's trip to Berlin highlighted his pro-European politics and desire to work with Mrs Merkel on what he says must become "a more efficient Europe, a more democratic Europe, a more political Europe".
Germany is looking to Mr Macron to revitalise France as an economic power and political heavyweight in the European Union, which is facing complex divorce proceedings with its current number two economy, Britain.
"We have to think about how we can deepen and crisis-proof the European Union, and especially the eurozone", she said.
