Will Maud Olofsson come to Trollhättan on Thursday? The Swedish industry minister received an invitation today from Saab CEO Victor Muller. A high-ranking delegation from China under Pang Da President Pang Qinghua will be in the city on Thursday and Friday. You want to see what is most important - since it is contractually agreed - that production is running on Friday. In addition, visitors want to learn about the “engineering competence” of the Swedes.
Saab / Spyker organized a dinner for Thursday, to which representatives of the local politicians and the Swedish government are invited. "It would be a gesture for the Swedish government to show that they have good contacts with Saab and that the country has a positive climate for the automotive industry," said Saab CEO Muller. Government involvement would add credibility to the matter.
A meeting with the Pang Da delegation is planned for Thursday at three in the afternoon, and then dinner in the evening - on both dates one hopes for the presence of Maud Olofsson.
Paul Åkerlund, the mayor of Saab City, wishes the minister to participate. “It would have great symbolic power. Participation would be a real government gesture and would show how important Saab is to Sweden. I hope for the government. ”
Håkan Lind, spokesman for the ministry, said that it was difficult to be represented at ministerial level at short notice when asked by the TT news agency.
The government has done little for Saab so far. The participation of the minister would finally be a sign and would impress the delegation from China.
