PARIS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Thursday that France's new government, after a cabinet reshuffle on Thursday, would keep up working for reforms until the end of Socialist President Francois Hollande's term in 2017.

Valls also said the new cabinet, named by Hollande to try to bolster his sagging popularity, was one that had experience, solidity and a broader base to include three members of the Greens Party.
