PARIS (Reuters) - France will be attentive as to who replaces the French government in gas utility Engie's capital <ENGIE.PA> and will not let it fall under Anglo-American or Chinese control, the head of the state holding company said on Thursday.

"We can't imagine that Engie's capital would be dominated by Anglo-Saxon or Chinese interests," Martin Vial told BFM Business TV.

"We are very attentive about what's going on in Portugal at the moment," he said. "So any change in Engie's capital will prompt us to be vigilant on which shareholders will replace the state," he added.

France is planning a raft of privatisations, which include Engie and airport operator ADP.
