Chinese bid for Opel came too late to assess-Finmin


BERLIN, May 27 (Reuters) - A bid for carmaker Opel by China's Beijing Automotive Industry Corp (BAIC) came too late for the government to assess it in depth, German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck said on Wednesday. He said the government was heading into a Wednesday meeting on Opel without a preferred bidder but said a preference could emerge by the end of the meeting in the German Chancellery.
