PARIS (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Thursday he will call Lawrence Culp, the head of General Electric GE.N, in a bid to save jobs at the Belfort factory in eastern France.

“We will make sure that GE respects its commitments regarding jobs in Belfort... I will have the opportunity to call GE Chairman and CEO Larry Culp (on the issue),” Le Maire told a hearing at the French senate.
