MANILA, Nov 29 (Reuters) - The Philippines’ San Miguel Corp is looking to bid for Vietnam’s largest brewer Sabeco , the conglomerate’s president said on Wednesday.
“Yes,” Ramon Ang told Reuters in a text message when asked if San Miguel is looking to join the bidding for the Vietnamese brewer.
Vietnam said earlier on Wednesday it is open to selling a 54-percent stake in Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp, but capped foreign ownership at about 49 percent. (Reporting by Neil Jerome Morales; Editing by Manolo Serapio Jr.)
