Strong Renault-Nissan alliance remains a priority


The alliance between French car manufacturer Renault and its Japanese counterpart Nissan remains a top priority. That said French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on Tuesday in a comment on a possible merger between Renault and the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler. The French government is the largest shareholder in Renault.

“Only if no one doubts the strength of the Renault-Nissan alliance will it be possible to continue discussions about a merger with Fiat,” Le Maire said. He also reiterated that the French government will take the time to study a possible merger deal.

Fiat Chrysler drivers would have visited Paris last weekend. The Italian-American group and Renault are working behind the scenes, according to insiders, on possibilities to breathe new life into the failed merger. The first merger attempt collapsed earlier this month.
