TOKYO: Renault SA Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard, arriving in Japan for a meeting with Nissan Motor, said it was not yet time to discuss whether he would assume the chairmanship of the Japanese automaker, Jiji news agency reported on Thursday.
Senard, who is expected to meet Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa and reaffirm an alliance rocked by the arrest and ouster of former Chairman Carlos Ghosn, also said he expected discussions to be amicable, according to the report.
Senard was appointed chairman of the French automaker three weeks ago, and is also expected to be named to Nissan's board, given Renault's 43 percent stake in the Japanese firm. It remains unclear whether Senard will also become chairman of Nissan.
