This morning they were in Hong Kong, now Victor Muller and Jan Ake Jonsson are in Beijing. It's about negotiating with Chinese auto manufacturers for a strategic partnership and about technology transfer of the new modular and state-of-the-art Saab Phoenix platform to China.
Amounts are to be released that end the current liquidity crisis. It is still unclear who Muller and Jonsson are negotiating with, as previously reported, there are four automakers, two of which are titled “Big Manufacturers”, whatever that means.
Victor Muller welcomed the decision of the National Debt Administration in favor of Antonov and sees Saab taking a big step in the right direction.
At home in Sweden today, the first supplier, the IAC Group, has terminated 200 employees in Skara and Färgelanda. For the time being, the Swedish government will not comment on the Antonov question, but will decide only after the EIB, this has just been announced.
