The Swedish government invests 2.6 billion euro (28 billion SEK) in support for the Swedish automotive industry. 280,000 euro of the package goes to a government owned research- and development institute.
"Positive and in line with previous discussions," says Anders Kärrberg, Director Governmental Affairs.

Today, the Swedish Minister of Industry Maud Olofsson and the Minister of Economics Anders Borg held a press conference, presenting the Swedish Government's support package for the automotive industry.

The package consists of three main parts:

0.3 billion euro (3 billion SEK). Goes to a government owned company for research and development in the automotive industry.
1.9 billion euro (20 billion SEK). Goes to governmental credit guarantees to companies in the automotive industry. The loans shall be used for conversion to green technologies and will be financed by the European Investment Bank.
0.5 billion euro (5 billion SEK). Goes to bridge loans for companies in the automotive industry that find themselves in financial crisis.
Maud Olofsson says that jobs in the car industry shall stay and be developed within Sweden and that the government will be active, not being an owner, but taking responsibility for the tax payers' money.

"We are taking a long term perspective with this investment. We will have an automotive industry in our country also in 20 years time."

Ha. Lega. Aku dah 80% ready je kalau kena berenti keja awal tahun depan. Tapi berita dalaman terbaru ni berjaya mengurangkan peratus aku kena berenti. Alhamdulillah.

Baru je cita cita nak join venture manage restoran baru bukak dengan seorang awek cun. Belum lagi kot. Kerja aku stabil lagi. Tapi aku akan tetap pantau tahap kualiti restoran tu nanti walaupun tak dibayar gaji. 5 tahun pengalaman kualiti kontrol ni. Korang jaga baik.
