French Banks Are Better Capitalized Than Year Ago, Pecresse Says
French banks are better capitalized now than they were a year ago and shouldn’t be a cause for concern, Budget Minister Valerie Pecresse said today.
Pecresse also said that the government will find a way to meet its deficit reduction targets even after lawmakers proposed amendments to the 2012 budget that would reverse a tax increase on tickets for theme parks.
Pecresse spoke to journalists in Jouy-en-Josas, France.
