Italy -FIAT likely to stay -January 05, 2014

Carmaker Fiat's recent deal to gain full control of No. 3 U.S. automaker Chrysler has raised worries the merger could further diminish Fiat's presence in Italy and lead to job cuts. The ministry of economic development dismissed concerns expressed by unions, saying the merger, which will combine the technology, dealer networks and cash of the two companies, could only be positive for the country. The ministry will meet with representatives from the automotive sector supply chain on 10 January to discuss moves that could help revive the car market, which has shrunk to levels last seen in the 1970s.
