Yesterday ttela.se published an open letter from Mr Antonov asking to be allowed to meet Ms Olofson from the Swedish government. Today Mr. Lindberg, head of Department of Commerce, says that this meeting will take place in the next days.
Things are happening this week. I’m starting to believe in a production start on Friday.
Olofsson says yes to date with Antonov
Maud Olofsson (C) is planning to meet with the Russian financier Vladimir Antonov in Stockholm the next few days.
“We do not mind meeting him. We’re discussing certain times to get to a meeting between them both the next few days and a bit later on,” says Håkan Lindberg, Head of the Department of Commerce.
He adds that Maud Olofsson does not really have any need to see Antonov when it does not affect the actual process of getting him approved as owner from the European Investment Bank.
“They have never met before and I think it would have been very good. It would be beneficial to the whole process if the government could make its statement first,” says Lars Carlstrom, spokesman for the Antonov.
When would the meeting take place?
“He gives priority to such a meeting and can quickly fly over from London. It would provide a safety and provide good signals to the subcontractors that a clear shareholder structure is completed,” said Lars Carlstrom.
Although Antonov and Carlstrom look positively at Saab cooperation with the Chinese dealer Pang Da.
