Moscovici Maintains French 2013 Economic Growth Target at 0.8%

French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici reiterated the government’s forecast for gross domestic product growth of 0.8 percent in 2013 in an interview with BFM Radio today.

Moscovici sees a slow start to growth next year, saying that progress depends on “dynamic” growth in the euro region, stable French demand and increased competitiveness.

“If these three factors work together, then it will be possible,” to reach the growth target, he said.
