Despite his generally free-market approach, Sarkozy has been intimately involved in a few large private business issues in France - most notably telling retailers that they had to lower their prices. It wouldn't surprise me if this is just a prelude to his government being a bit more "hands-on" with respect to getting Airbus' house in order.

Quoting GeorgiaAME (Reply 2): Maybe there is a reason he appointed a "socialist" as foreign minister
Bernard Kouchner has been expelled by the French Socialist Parties chairman Hollande - what a qualified a.h. Hollande is ! He called for "ouverture" during the presidential elections in the name of his party ,but declines to accept the "ouverure" when applied by the other side. He's just some kind of stupid,redarded entreched Socialist ,stuck in the '60 idieology. Poor Ségolène,having guy like him as partner....

He said a very true matter.Euro is too strong vs US$ , thus Airbus is weaker vs Boeing.That's so true !
Will see what he will be able to do for that.
He also said he will be back at TLS at the beginning of July with Angela Merkel , and then both will go to the Airbus factory at HAM latter.
Obviously he want to go very fast to bring EADS and Airbus in a better and stronger health.
I do not believe he will make pressure to AF to buy Airbus rather than Boeing.
I am impatient to see if really AF will go to 787 vs A350XWB , as some rumors told recently.
Totally agree with you .Hollande is outdated and will be well inspired to leave the presidency of the "Parti Socialiste".
For him "Ouverture" = "Gauche".This time "Ouverture" = "Droite".
Anyway , there is no exclusivity.We don't care.First thing , "Gauche" or "Droite" , only the results have a value.
