Jan 14 Daimler AG is not aware of
China Investment Corp's (CIC) plans to take a stake in the
company and is not in talks with CIC, Chief Executive Dieter
Zetsche told reporters at the Detroit auto show on Monday.
Zetsche also said Daimler was in talks with China's BAIC
Group about its role in an initial public offering of BAIC's
passenger car unit.
Earlier this month, a Chinese media report said China
Investment Corp, the country's investment vehicle, was
interested in buying a stake of between 4 percent and 10 percent
in Daimler. [ID: nL5E9C71R3]
