PARIS: President Francois Hollande said on Monday he would take "any risk" to boost French economic growth above the government's forecast 1 percent in 2015, in a bid to cut unemployment with help from economic reforms.

Hollande said he would continue to pursue growth via economic reforms despite very low approval ratings and two local elections coming up in March and December of 2015 where his Socialist Party is expected to receive a drubbing.
