PARIS: French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said today he expected carmaker Renault to name its new chief executive in a few days.

Le Maire also said on French CNews TV that media reports that some Nissan executives wanted to break up the alliance with Renault were “malicious”.

Nissan said today it was “in no way” considering dissolving its alliance with Renault and Mitsubishi Motors and that the alliance was the source of Nissan’s competitiveness.

The 20-year alliance is “solid, robust, everything but dead,” the chairman of Renault, Jean-Philippe Senard, told Belgian newspaper L’Echo.
