Immelt said Thursday that GE aims to resolve an ongoing dispute over beleaguered Dabhol project in western India in a constructive and flexible way. The 2184-megawatt Dabhol project, India's larges foreign investment project to date, was shut down in June 2001 after a dispute over electricity prices between then-owner Enron and its only customer, the Maharasthra State Electricity Board.

Former General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt could be tapped to head Uber


Former General Electric (GE) CEO Jeffery Immelt is on a shortlist of names under consideration to take over as Uber's newest CEO, sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. There are fewer than six names on the narrowing list of candidates expected to fill a leadership vacuum left by former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, who resigned in late June after failing to reverse the company's image in the wake of sexual harrassment allegations and sexism.

The 61-year-old stepped down from his spot at GE in early June after a 16-year-year tenure.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman was also on the list, but she withdrew her name from the pile on Thursday reaffirming her commitment to her company.

The San Francisco-based company told Bloomberg it hopes to name a CEO by early September.
