GM Said to Revive Partnership Talks With Malaysia’s Proton

General Motors Co. has begun talks with Proton Holdings Bhd., Malaysia’s biggest automaker, to form a manufacturing venture in the Southeast Asian country, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The discussions revive negotiations that were scrapped in 2007, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are confidential. The talks are preliminary and may not lead to an agreement, they said.
