PARIS (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said he was examining all options regarding St Gobain’s Pont-A-Mousson plant, including possible deals with a Chinese partner or a U.S. fund.
“We will look at all the possible options,” Le Maire told the French parliament on Tuesday, in response to a question from a lawmaker.
Le Maire did not identify either the Chinese firm nor the U.S. fund which he said were interested in the St Gobain Pont-A-Mousson plant.
French media had earlier reported that St Gobain was considering the sale of a 60 percent stake in its Pont-A-Mousson unit to Chinese company XinXing Ductile Iron Pipes.
