Report: WMC's Morgan, Alcoa's Belda to meet

WMC chief executive Hugh Morgan will travel to the United States to meet his Alcoa counterpart Alain Belda in their first face-to-face meeting since WMC rejected a US$5.8 billion takeover proposal, The Australian Financial Review said.

The two men will meet for biannual discussions on the Alcoa Worldwide Alumina and Chemicals joint venture amid market uncertainty about the proposed demerger of WMC's alumina and base metal assets,
