The EU's Economic Affairs commissioner Olli Rehn on Friday said it would be 'reasonable' to give France two extra years to meet the EU deficit target of 3 percent. Rehn offered France extra time after the European Commission's spring forecasts painted a pessimistic picture of the French economy over the next two years, with its deficit notably rising sharply from 3.9 percent of GDP this year to 4.2 percent next year.
