A man walks in front of the gate of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp., in ShanghaiBy Norihiko Shirouzu BEIJING (Reuters) - General Motors and Chinese partner SAIC Motor Corp will soon announce a joint push into Indonesia, using their no-frills Wuling brand to establish a beachhead in Southeast Asia’s biggest market and from there tackle other markets in the region. They have already made moves to purchase a property in an industrial district on the outskirts of Jakarta, according to two people familiar with the matter, and are expected to detail within days what GM China chief Matt Tsien called an important joint venture in a country of 240 million people. In a report late Friday, officials from Indonesia's industry ministry told state Antara news agency that GM and SAIC would invest a total of $700 million in Indonesia to set up operations to manufacture and market Wuling vehicles in the country.

Remy Cabella (kneeling) celebrates scoring the opening goal for Newcastle against Hull at the KC Stadium in Hull on January 31, 2015John Carver finally enjoyed his first win as Newcastle manager as the Magpies cruised to a 3-0 success at struggling Hull on Saturday. Carver had gone four matches without a victory since taking over from Alan Pardew at St James' Park on a caretaker basis, but in the week the Newcastle-born 50-year-old was confirmed as head coach until the end of the season, he was able to celebrate three points at last. After three successive defeats, Newcastle were lifted by Remy Cabella's strike just before half-time and second half goals from Sammy Ameobi and Yoan Gouffran ensured Newcastle would clinch their first win since December 28.
