The EU Commission has invited General Motors and economic ministers from EU countries with Opel/Vauxhall plants to meet in Brussels on Monday (November 23) to discuss the company’s restructuring plans for Europe.

The aim is to talk about the future of GM in Europe and to ‘coordinate’, according to EU officials.

The EU is trying to head off a bidding war between countries keen to provide subsidies that protect jobs and also to ensure that EU rules on state aid and competition are observed.

GM’s acting head of European operations Nick Reilly is also expected to attend the session.
