(AP) French supermarket group Carrefour is selling off its business in Indonesia for 525 million ($670 million) as part of a broader effort at turning around its fortunes.


Carrefour SA, the world's second-largest retailer by revenue after Wal-Mart Stores Inc., announced Tuesday that it is selling its 60-percent stake in Carrefour Indonesia to its local partner, CT Corp.


CT Corp. will now run the company's 84 hypermarkets and other stories in Indonesia, Carrefour says in a statement.


Carrefour, facing slowdown in Europe and troubles with its core hypermarket business, is working on a turnaround plan that includes shedding some of its operations.
