Sharp criticism on Sweden regarding Saab

Lars Holmqvist, the recently retired CEO of CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers) sharply criticised swedish government in talks with Just Auto. There could be done much more in the Saab case and the situation could look completely different today.

He's by far not the only one, with such and simillar criticism.

"In no other country, you would have had such a cool government as Sweden, no other country in Europe. If they wanted to, they could have done a lot more. The deal with Youngman could have been done and closed, " told Holmqvist.

Currently CLEPA members are employing around 5.000.000 people and about a half of the R&D money into cars is their investment, so Holmqvists words have a power.

He also revealed, that Volvo offered a lot of jobs to good engineers from Saab. Great for them, bad for the sinking Saab.
