PARIS, Feb 3 (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici on Sunday said the government believed it could reach its 2013 economic growth target of 0.8 percent.
Moscovici told France 2 television that he is maintaining the target ahead of the publication of the European Commission's
euro-zone economy forecasts, expected on Feb. 22.
'We will have discussions,' Moscovici said. 'If we will need to adapt, we will adapt. But I am confident about the French economy.'
Moscovici also said that although the euro has stabilised, it may have become too strong.
'The euro is stable, it is strong, perhaps too strong in some respects,' he said.
