LONDON - General Motors said on Monday British adoption of the single European currency would remove some uncertainty for business but was not a decisive factor for investment.
Chief Executive Rick Wagoner told reporters in London that if Britain was satisfied its tests for euro entry had been met "we certainly agree with the view that moving into the common currency would take some of the uncertainty off the table."
"But I guess I want to make clear that it isn't a do or die issue as far as making investments," he added.
Wagoner also said it was too early to quantify the effect on production and earnings of a recent tornado that hit its Oklahoma plant. "As far as impact on production and earnings, I think it's premature for me to comment," he said.
