Samsung helps win Fokker reprieve

Dutch Prime Minister Wim Kok said yesterday that several companies, including South Korean conglomerate Samsung, were still interested in acquiring the loss-making Dutch aircraft-maker Fokker. The Dutch government on Friday approved a two-week extension to bridging credits for the beleaguered plane-maker. Fokker has depended on the state-cash injection since its majority shareholder Daimler Benz cut off support on 22 January.
