CNH Industrial decides to sell its truck unit Iveco to China's FAW the move would have to be approved first by the Italian government, the industry minister said on Thursday. CNH Industrial said recently that it could consider alternatives to a planned spin-off and separate listing of its truck and bus business and that it was in talks with FAW over the future of Iveco. In case of takeovers in key industries involving assets deemed of national interest, Rome can use its so-called "golden powers", allowing it to veto or impose strict conditions on such deals. Asked whether Rome could exercise such powers over a potential Iveco sale, Industry Minister Giancarlo Giorgetti said the government would start an inquiry into the matter should the transaction materialise. "It's safe to say that this matter objectively falls into the golden power regulation, so it means we'll use it," he said during a press conference. CNH Industrial declined to comment. ... » Learn More about Italy would exercise veto powers in event of Iveco sale to China’s FAW: minister

A growing number of youngsters aspire to be social media influencers for fame and fortune. But experts warn about a narcissitic trend that can be devastating for youths. Wang Yuke reports from Hong Kong. If Hong Kong's big-time fortune tellers can strike gold by amassing a huge following over time, there's a group of young go-getters trying to take a leaf out of their book — social media influencers. But the luck and instinct that may guarantee one's success in any field of endeavor simply don't fall from the sky. It could be a make-it-or-break-it move. Kenson, 10, is nothing short of a toy influencer in Hong Kong despite his tender age. "I often come across strangers recognizing me on the street. They would leap at me, excitedly shout out my name and ask for selfies," says Kenson shyly. "I was happy about it but it, somehow, set me on edge." While many young YouTubers wallow in stardom and the glee of being lionized, being a household name is not on Kenson's priority list. ... » Learn More about Wallowing in stardom or a minefield?
