Fair use extract:
===============

PARIS, Nov 16 (Reuters) - EADS (EAD.PA: Quote, Profile, Research) is negotiating with potential foreign investors including major Gulf funds over the possibility of selling them direct stakes in its Airbus unit to help fund its A350 project, Les Echos reported on Thursday.

Les Echos, quoting a source close to the matter, said EADS was in advanced talks with Dubai International Capital (DIC) and Qatar Investment Authority.

It said EADS was also looking at potential investors in China, India and Russia -- all major markets for its jets -- as well as the United States, home to its rival Boeing.

This sounds like a good idea, especially China - China has a huge pile of cash, and selling them a stake could bring more Chinese business in the future.

Now is the right time for Boeing to invest in Airbus.
