German government - no comment on Siemens, Bombardier rail joint venture talks

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German government spokesman declined to comment on Wednesday on reported talks between Siemens (SIEGn.DE) and Canada’s Bombardier (BBDb.TO) on combining their rail operations.

Asked if the government was involved, the spokesman told reporters: “The economics department in the chancellory of course follows the business landcape in Germany, as is its job, but I can’t make any statement here about concrete cases.”

Two people close to the matter told Reuters on Tuesday that Siemens and Bombardier are in talks.
