MILAN (Reuters) - Italy supports Fiat Chrysler’s growth plans and does not expect them to lead to job losses, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said after the carmaker made a “transformative” merger proposal to Renault.

“Fiat Chrysler expanding is good news for Italy ... I count on it being a brilliant operation that preserves every single job while creating a European car industry giant,” Salvini told a press conference on Monday.
