Siemens: Key to have dialogue based on trust with EU about Alstom deal

MUNICH, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Siemens Chief Executive Joe Kaeser said on Monday it was important to have a dialogue based on trust with European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager about a planned merger of Siemens’ and Alstom’s rail businesses.

France and Germany on Monday raised pressure on Vestager to approve the merger, warning that thwarting the proposed European champion would be a strategic error.
