PARIS (Reuters) - France revised its public deficit target for this year to 2.8 percent of GDP from 2.7 percent in a document to be presented to euro zone partners on Wednesday, French daily Les Echos said on Tuesday without citing sources.

The government's so-called growth and stability program - a budget plan for the next few years required by the European Union - also sees the French deficit fall to 1.3 percent by 2020.
