PARIS, March 15 France's economy is set to grow this year less than the 1.4 percent the European Central Bank has forecast for the broader euro zone, Bank of France governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Tuesday.
"We (the ECB) revised growth down to 1.4 percent for the whole of the euro zone and France will be a bit below that," Villeroy, who sits on the ECB's governing council, said on France Inter radio.
