  • Pas de décisions sur ABX avant vendredi
    Le conseil des ministres restreint prévu pour hier mercredi matin n’a pas eu lieu, la ministre concernée au premier chef par le dossier ABX Logistics, Isabelle Durant (Ecolo), étant absente (elle était à Montréal pour une réunion sur la sécurité aérienne). Il a donc été remis à vendredi. Entretemps, une campagne de lobbying en tous sens se déroule, sur base de laquelle il est possible de déceler les positions des partis de la coalition. Selon nos informations, il est quasiment acquis que les socialistes - flamands et wallons - défendront le projet défendu par l’administateur délégué de la SNCB, Etienne Schouppe, qui est de filialiser la division de transport routier et de logistique et d’ouvrir son capital à des tiers, la SNCB conservant le contrôle. “Il y a neuf chances sur dix qu’ABX ne sera pas vendu”, nous a dit une source très bien informée. Schouppe a lui aussi contribué à ce lobbying de dernière minute en accordant une interview à nos confrères du Tijd et de l’Echo. Il en ressort que sept groupes ont proposé de prendre une participation. Il y aurait même une offre ferme pour 25% du capital, le maximum autorisé par le gouvernement.
