PARIS, March 6 French auto maker PSA Peugeot
Citroen is set to seal an industrial and commercial deal with
Kazakhstan that could generate more than 300 jobs in France, the
French government said in a statement on Wednesday.
The project, due to be signed on Thursday in Paris, would
also create 150 jobs in the central Asian country, the statement
"The deal involves the assembly in Kazakhstan of car kits
produced in France," a PSA spokesman said.
PSA, which has announced plans to slash thousands of jobs to
cope with shrinking car sales in Europe, last week said it was
in talks on sharing vehicle production with Russia's ZIL
