BEIJING (Reuters) – China’s Geely will explore the possibility of deeper cooperation with German luxury automaker Daimler AG (DAIGn.DE), its Chairman Li Shufu said on Friday.

Geely built a 9.69% stake in Stuttgart-based Daimler in 2018. The two companies formed a China-based venture to build electric Smart cars and a separate premium ride-hailing venture. They also invested in Volocopter, a flying taxi company.
