Unfortunately, India has not forgotten Bofors – Aftonbladet

The image of Howitzer 77 on an election poster in Varanasi in 1990 is one of those things that stuck in the memory.

It was on a back street – almost an alley. Drying cow dung on the walls, a hint of smoke from the pyre down at the Ganges in the air. And just where a pale election poster with a silhouette I knew from the days of practice at the firing ranges in Villingsberg and Älvdalen.

Maybe they got it for me to understand how the weapons produced in Karlskoga where I lived during the 1980s held the changing scene in the world’s largest democracy.

Yesterday came President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee to Stockholm. It is the first time an Indian Head of State will visit Sweden. Receiving the Crown Princess at Arlanda and the Mounted procession through Stockholm, the welcome ceremony with the King and talk with the prime minister.

Before he flies further tomorrow President Mukherjee additionally have time to look at urban planning in Hammarby seaport, medical research at the Karolinska Institute and give a lecture at Uppsala University.

Need I say that the Swedish government hopes that the visit will lead to new and larger deals between India and Sweden? A market of more than 1.2 billion people and an economy that is growing and liberalized is a wet dream for Mikael Damberg.

Still, held throughout the visit to go to hell, because of an innocent journalism question Today’s News possibly a bit nonchalantly asked to President Mukherjee. It was about precisely those where the howitzer why I looked at the poster, 1990.

President Mukherjee is a political veteran of Congress, Mahatma Gandhi’s movement that dominated Indian politics since independence. The party lost last year’s parliamentary elections. So it is really a representative of the political opposition who visits Sweden.

The first time the Congress Party lost power was precisely in 1989, and it was not so little at those howitzer were on the poster in Varanasi. Bofors became a synonym for bribes.

Although Congress periodically returned to power has not been the same after, 1989.

No wonder President Mukherjee was furious when the Daily News reminded ” Bofors scandal “.

The power monopoly was broken, and one of the opposition’s main argument was precisely cannon deal with Bofors and Sweden. It was supposed to take place without intermediaries, without bribes. And yet revealed the usual rotten pattern of kickbacks and shady agents.

Congress Party went out and Hindi nationalists came in. Its economy began liberalization and a decade to large been characterized by ethnic violence began.

The only thing that largely remained constant was enough corruption.


Ukraine’s economy will shrink more – Metro

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) lowers growth forecast for Ukraine’s economy. The country’s economy is expected to shrink by 9 percent. in 2015. The main cause is the unresolved conflict in the area.

A delegation from the IMF has recently been on a two-week visit to Ukraine. The result is that the earlier pessimistic expectation, a growth spigot 5 percent, more vivid.

Inflation in Ukraine is expected to reach 46 percent, mostly due to the soaring price of oil.

Despite the very pessimistic expectations so says the head of the IMF delegation have had constructive talks during the visit to Ukraine. There are some signs of stable growth in the country, and they have become somewhat clearer in recent months, explained the IMF in a statement after the visit.


First Indian state visit ever – Swedish Radio

Today, the lands, the Indian president in Sweden for the first Indian state visit to Sweden ever. And both countries hope it will lead to increased trade. But the attention of the president’s trip is not overwhelming in India.

There is no line if the President Pranab Mukherjee’s trip to Sweden in the morning’s newspapers in India. But writes Zee TV’s website on the visit to Sweden. There, says that there live about 18 000 people of Indian origin in Sweden, and there are about 170 Swedish companies in India. But only 50 Indian companies in Sweden.

An Indian President’s role is essentially ceremonial but Mukherjee, who has held the position since 2012, has been active in Indian politics since the early 1970s . The Congress party that lost power a year ago, he has held many ministerial posts.

If it is quiet today around the state visit that brought the DN’s interview with the president a week ago, the more attention this time the scandal Bofors affair again came up into the light.

It was in 1986 that Swedish Bofors sold arms to India a billion deal in which echo later revealed that in the context of the agreement had money paid into a secret account in Switzerland. Mutanklagelserna said to be one reason that Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi lost elections, 1989.

Ever since this business been like an open wound between India and Sweden. The word Bofors in India is synonymous with corruption.

Just a month ago appeared the word up in Parliament when the Congress Party Raul Gandhi gave a speech where he went on the attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of not doing anything for the poor and to stop corruption in the country. Then someone shouted out into the parliament “Bofors” as a pointer towards the Congress Party that was in power when the deal was made up.

On his visit to Sweden, the Indian President that in addition to various company visits to meet both the King and Prime Minister Stephen Löfven.

New trend: Drugs that are difficult to produce – but incredibly profitable – New Technology


Biological drugs are proteins that are grown in living cells or bacteria. They have proven to be very effective against diseases such as rheumatism, various cancers and blood diseases. With fewer side effects than traditional drugs produced chemically, they have become hugely successful and profitable.

Seven of the eight medicines which last year raked in the most money in the world is biological. The peak is Humira, a drug for rheumatoid arthritis from Abbvie, which sold for SEK 110 billion. All eight sells for more than 50 billion per year. None of them come from Astra Zeneca.

The high income has two causes: the efficacy and that they are expensive and complicated to produce.

The active substances, often antibodies, produced by genetically modified mammalian or bacterial cells. To produce, extract and purify them is complicated.

– Everything is done in extremely controlled environments, and because it is about injection products, they must be completed in a cleanroom that is 100 000 times cleaner than an operating room, said Magnus Gustafsson on Cobra Biologics in Södertälje.

Cobra Biologics is one of the few Swedish manufacturer of biopharmaceuticals. At the company’s plants in Sweden and the UK produced biologics for clinical trials. Customers are between 50 and 60 pharmaceutical companies worldwide

Everything that is produced is sent to a facility in Matfors outside Sundsvall to either freeze-dried or filled in syringes and vials. All sources of pollution must be excluded because the drugs most often injected directly into the blood. It is a must because the proteins are broken down in the gastrointestinal tract.

The plant in Södertälje belonged to the former Astra Zeneca. In the early 2000s constituted the company’s burgeoning investment in biologics, but in 2009 was spun Cobra Biologics off. The company has since grown to 240 people.

AstraZeneca’s goal now is to come into the big players in biologics. These include Roche, Amgen and Pfizer. And to break into the list of the world’s most profitable drugs. The investment of one billion facility in Södertälje is a step along the way.

– It feels great to a large caps such as Astra Zeneca invests in biological production facilities in Sweden and the region, says Magnus Gustafsson.

The car factory in Trollhattan has been at a standstill for a year. For the employees got the news of the new partners is therefore a very positive response. “Now we can breathe a little,” says Mikael Jofur.

Nevs have only had time built a few hundred cars in Trollhättan, but then there have been regular 9-3 and not electric cars. Although this day is the giant car plant quiet and deserted. So it has been for a year.

Marcus Dahlöf is the team leader in the assembly, but it was long ago, he mounted a car.


– It is sad. We want to build the car. But there has always been a belief in the future, he said.

Before he was hired by Nevs he worked twelve years at Saab before the bankruptcy, 2011. The announcement employees were at a summit of the two Chinese partners think he feels hopeful.

– It is a starting point for new efforts, he said.

His colleague Michael Jofur, also with many years of Saab before Nevs-time, says that the data was received very positively by the employees. Since reductions in the fall is 350 employees remaining on Nevs.

Marcus Dahlöf has served two years on Nevs and before that twelve years at Saab Automobile. He thinks that the news of Chinese partner feels positive.






A land of fitters – Business World

All new jobs are not as important. AstraZeneca’s new factory in Södertälje is an excellent example.

“It smacks future.” The words came from Prime Minister Stephen Löfven after news that Astra Zeneca will build a new production plant for biologics in Södertälje. The investment of over 2.3 billion and from 150 to 250 skilled jobs to be created in the coming years.

Otherwise associated AstraZeneca most the Swedish Life Science -sektorns decline. The company has put two of its three research facilities in Sweden – over 2000 skilled jobs are gone.

It fueled the debate on how Sweden really stands out as a research nation in global competition. And how can the right life science not to be one of Sweden’s parade branches? It is Sweden, in all cases, the Nobel Committee, who each year decide which are the finest researchers in medicine and chemistry. And that set the agenda for which research areas are hottest.

Everyone was excited about the news of the AstraZeneca Investment last Monday, not only Stefan Löfven. The message was that if this goes well, it may be more of the same. Astra Zeneca’s plan is a program in three parts where additional pharmaceutical plant included. The entire investment is at 8 billion and could result in a total of some 1 000 jobs.

CEO Pascal Soriot promised nothing, but pointed out that the possibility exists if the conditions are right.

So how big is the chance to Sweden rowing home the whole package?

AstraZeneca’s production facilities for pharmaceutical production in Södertälje – in Snäckviken and Gärtuna – among the largest in the world. It produces ten billion pills a year.

plant in Gärtuna is also one of the most effective available, this is the Group’s new medicines in tablet form in the production.

For over a decade, Gärtunafabriken methodically trimmed production processes, step by step. All the time to be more products coming out with less efforts. AstraZeneca has learned of the large caps neighbor in Södertälje, Scania, which is probably the best in Sweden for so-called Lean product. Lean originated in the Japanese automotive group Toyota and can be summarized by a manufacturing process to constantly strive to achieve the highest quality, shortest lead time and lowest cost.

It was a weighty reason to Astra Zeneca’s management chose to add the new factory in right södermanländska Gärtuna – before Singapore, UK, USA and Ireland.

Ett another plus in the side was a campus for education and research on the production and logistics in Södertälje, at the initiative of the previous government, together with the Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Astra Zeneca and Scania. On this campus is the idea that industrial research must be conducted and show the world that the Swedish state takes responsibility for training the skilled personnel needed by industry to cope with an increasingly tough global competition.

The message seems to have got through. The Government’s commitment was emphasized especially by the CEO Pascal Soriot.

But all the joy over the news last week despite, it is a question that lingers and the rub: Where does Sweden as a knowledge nation?

Undoubtedly Södertälje is of great importance to AstraZeneca. The total of seven production plants which manufacture drugs for more than a third of the group’s sales. Export value amounts to approximately SEK 39 billion – a figure that corresponds to 3.5 percent of Sweden’s total exports of goods.

Gärtunafabriken have shown heavy competence in factory processes. Is this putting together goods and products in a super-efficient way of becoming Sweden’s new specialty? Lacking the expertise that the research-intensive companies need?

An indication of this can be read in the Business World sister publication Ny Teknik’s annual review of the approximately 40 Companies in Sweden that has the greatest research and development. The survey last year showed that the ten largest R & D employers now have more than half of their research abroad.

At the same time global investments R & D dramatically, but it is obvious that the money does not land in Sweden.

Business investment in research and development is something that governments around the world desires high. They have a high added value for the country. New innovations and products spreading new jobs in other high-value sectors, in stages both before and after the actual R & D: n, for example, marketing and service of the products. High value added in the country’s production provides high wages and high yields in the community.

For the new Astra Zeneca plant in Södertälje will no doubt require highly skilled engineers, biologists and pharmacists. But it is not R & D jobs. That’s the problem.

Telia singled out in new bribery scandal for 6 billion – Aftonbladet

This is what the examination of TT / SVT’s Mission Review and OCCRP shows:

2005, Telia Sonera’s holding company Fintur 79, 8 percent of another holding, Azertel. Partners in Azertel are Turkish Cenay Insaat by 20.2 percent. Azertel in turn owns 64.3 percent of the telecom operator Azercell in Azerbaijan. Azeri government owns the rest, 35.7 percent, in Azercell, but already in 2004 announced that it wants to sell.

2005 transmits Cenay Insaat half of its ownership to the newly Cenay Iletisim sold to two companies in Panama. These are represented by the Swiss lawyer Olivier Most Elan. He in turn drives companies with the Azerbaijani presidential daughters Leyla and Arzu Aliyeva. According to leaked US diplomatic contained Most Elan also in the regime’s inner circle.

After four years of negotiations sell Azeri state its share in 2008 to Azertel. Although independent valuations concludes that the share is worth $ 785 million selling the state $ 180 million, a discount equivalent to nearly 5 billion Swedish crowns.

On paper pay Cenay Iletisim of the purchase price through a rights issue, but the financing is apparently in the form of a loan from the TeliaSonera-controlled companies. The debt is paid off with the profit that the common business generates so Cenay Iletisim do not put a penny.

Fintur refrain conscious of preemption to the shares and erode its ownership in Azertel so that the entire state share goes to Cenay Iletisim. After the privatization, Fintur owns 51.3 percent, Cenay Iletisim 42.2 percent and Cenay Insaat 6.5 percent in Azertel and Azercell.

2011 takes the Malta-registered FA Invest over Cenay Insaat. It is represented by a person with the same name as one of President Ilham Aliyev’s bodyguards. Companies with ties to the presidential family owns its 48.7 percent of Azercell.

Cenay Iletisim, with ties to the presidential daughters, has received dividends of approximately SEK 2 billion and has a put option indefinitely. It gives the company the right to be bought out by TeliaSonera, and then at the market. In TeliaSonera’s Annual Report for 2014 valued the option to SEK 6.8 billion.

If you stick to the percentage privatized (35.7 percent) and counting on dividends and option value on the basis of the share and deducts the $ 180 million plus interest Cenay Iletisim borrow for the purchase, the value amounts of the suspected bribe totaling to over 6 billion only in connection with the privatization. FA Invest has also received dividends of about SEK 145 million since it came into play in 2011.

Export Boom for small businesses – Helsingborgs Dagblad

– It is so gratifying to see that small businesses dare to take the leap and invest in these new markets, says Carl-Johan Karlsson also believes that many of the smaller companies run by a “new” kind of entrepreneurs.

– Younger entrepreneurs are “born global”, they do not have the same respect for the slightly more unusual markets. Earlier might be dared to export to France or Germany. Now you will find their customers in maybe Thailand or North Africa or Brazil; you dare to take the step right out, says Carl-Johan Karlsson.

The greatest was increase among the smallest, so-called micro-enterprises with fewer than ten employees. In this category, the number of companies that export to emerging countries by 18 percent.

A total exported micro and small enterprises to emerging markets for SEK 21.8 billion in 2014. From a national perspective, it is only a fraction of the total Swedish exports. But Carl Johan Karlsson considers that small business ventures are important.

– It means a lot for Swedish exports of small businesses willing to invest in markets with high growth potential. They have good chances in the long term grow really big, says Carl-Johan Karlsson.
