Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said on Friday that the French economy could grow by more than 1.0 percent this year, higher than the 0.9 percent forecast until now, if new government reforms lead to a return in confidence.
"Yes, we can do more than one percent in 2014. That's our desire," Moscovici told the daily Le Monde.
He said "there is a fundamental psychological element of the economy, if all participants ... can mobilise themselves, confidence can return and investment will accelerate."
