French President Sarkozy Met With Peugeot Chief Varin, AFP Says
French President Nicolas Sarkozy met with PSA Peugeot Citroen’s Chief Executive Officer Philippe Varin for almost an hour today, Agence France-Presse reported, citing the president’s office.
Sarkozy promised yesterday on French television to do all he could to save Peugeot’s Aulnay factory.
Peugeot, Europe’s second-largest carmaker, said in September that it would review the Aulnay factory because of a lack of competitiveness. The plant employs about 3,300 workers.
