PARIS  - France economy has the potential to rebound in 2013 and there are no plans to lower growth forecasts for next year, Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said in an interview.

“Once we are able to regain momentum in Europe and France, we have a real potential for growth in 2013,” said Moscovici, dismissing suggestions that the government may be preparing to lower its 1.2 percent growth target for 2013.
