– It is the only way we can keep down the fee. This means that the funding of many projects in Sweden may disappear for a number of years. It is a reality. There is no popular support in the uk to pay more into the EU and then among other things the consequence that we get less money back, ” says Danielsson in the Echo lördagsintervju sent in day.

EUROPEAN union money that is dealt in the first instance to the agricultural projects. In the poorer countries, the farmers share of the large sums of money, but also the Swedish farmers receive subsidies. In 2016, 2.6 billion to the rural development in Sweden and 7.6 billion to the Swedish scheme. In the future, the support will reduce significantly.

– There are as well as no money can rain from the sky that can make up the british contributions, ” says Danielsson.

Sweden and many other rich EUROPEAN countries have to reckon with the greatly reduced support for various EU projects, when the british, now leaves the union, according to Sweden’s EU ambassador.

– It is the only way we can keep down the fee. This means that the funding of many good projects may be lost if a number of years. It is a reality. There is no popular support in the uk to pay more into the EU and then among other things the consequence that we get less money back. We cannot afford simply, says Sweden’s EU ambassador Lars Danielsson.

Uk today the third largest contributor to the EU with € 18 billion annually. This is equal to about 180 billion sek.

When the money disappears, the EU needs to either raise tariffs for the member countries or reduce expenditure. The Swedish line is that the fees can’t be higher than today.

the Whole of the 40 per cent of the EU’s total the budget goes to the cap. Many of the guides have received harsh criticism over the years.

But Swedish farmers may, of course, money from here. Last year, for example, 2.2 billion for rural development and
7.6 billion was paid out to the Swedish scheme.

In the future, not the farmers count on as much support, ” says Lars Danielsson.

– It will reduce compared to today, but it will not be zero. I am convinced that the Swedish farmers will continue to get some type of assistance to maintain a viable agriculture, ” said EU ambassador.

Last year, Sweden approximately 40 billion Swedish kronor to the EU budget and received back 14. When the british have left the union will, therefore, the expenditure still to be much the same, but we will get back less.

– There are as well as no money can rain from the sky that can make up the british contributions. It may be done by adjusting our expenditure to the slightly lower income level, ” says EU ambassador Lars Danielsson.

postnord’s president and ceo, Håkan Ericsson. Photo: Adam Wrafter

postnord’s the financial statements for 2016 shows continued large losses in the Danish operations. Operating losses in Denmark were sek 1.9 billion in 2016, including impairment of goodwill of sek 800 million.

the Rest of the Postnord in profit, and the group made a helårsförlust 1 billion against -284 million for 2015. Sales fell by less than 1 billion to 38.5 billion.

president and Ceo, Håkan Eriksson sees no improvement in Denmark in the next 3-4 years and Postnord shall at the same time make a major adjustment to a whole new distribution model for the letter in Denmark.

Will you be able to you without the contribution from the owner?

” We are working with the conditions we have and we will submit a plan to the board of directors, said Ericsson.

So your assessment is that you can live without supplements?

” We have not made the plan in such detail. It depends a bit on how the volumes (in letters, ed) be developed, ” says Ericsson.

Postnord has approximately 7 000 employees in the mail in Denmark and most of them will lose their jobs in the coming years at a pace of about 1000 per year. More than 30 per cent of the Danish staff has a contract that makes it very expensive to terminate them, according to Ericsson, it involves contracts that can involve three years of the termination arbetsfritt.

− It will be a hefty conversion and it will cost moneyr. It’s all about the 100s of millions per year during the three to four years, says Ericsson.

It is thus obvious that the Swedish business will be forced to wear the Danish in many years to come.

Paketverksamheten is postnord’s cash cow. The Swedish mail business is under pressure but is not possible with the loss. According to Håkan Ericsson, it is however a matter of time and he expects that a change of the postal act, can give the company space for a rationalisation of the Swedish mail business.

Håkan Ericsson has lived through the past year kritikstorm against the company for lack of quality, both in letters and packages. He thinks that Postnord has taken until the of criticism, inter alia through a project he calls "Postnord is listening".

” We were not been good enough at to measure how the customer experienced the quality of our service. Now, we measure and capture what you think of our service and for example, we can see which agents receive criticism. What would we have done before, ” says Ericsson research.

The riksbank supports the tax on banks, the Business community

the Riksbank supports the government’s aim to reduce the tax that the financial sector in Sweden has for the tax-exempt status. The riksbank considers, however, that it is difficult to get an overview of the potential effects of the proposals for financial taxes, also known as the bank tax, which the commission has put forward, according to the Riksbank in its consultation response on the proposal to introduce an additional tax which is calculated based on bank employees ‘ salaries.

“There may therefore be grounds for a possible implementation of the proposal is combined with a plan for follow-up and evaluation of its effects,” writes the Riksbank.

It also needs to be ensured that the Swedish financial supervisory authority to engage in supervision, is not impaired in the event of any relocation of financial activities abroad, arguing the Riksbank.

the Inquiry mentions a number of potential risks associated with the proposal, such as that the tax could accelerate the implementation of digital technology within the financial sector.

“This development has positive effects, but also contains risks,” notes the Riksbank.

In one of last year’s reports on financial stability pointed out, the Riksbank, increased the use of information technology and outsourcing makes the financial system more vulnerable, for example, to cyber attacks.

In finansskatteutredningen also note that the tax could have implications for banks ‘ cross-border activities, for example, that critical activities such as risk analysis outsourced to other countries.

“It cannot be excluded that this may lead to the possibility to conduct supervision over the financial activities that are important for Sweden, more difficult”, according to the Riksbank.

the Commission proposals are out for consultation. How the government may go ahead with the proposal is not known.

Even if the government’s intention to introduce a bank tax, it is not certain that they will choose the model as the study suggested. The government has so far been restrained to comment on how they look at the objections that have been put forward against the proposal from various stakeholders.

” It is not possible to continue with these losses in Denmark. Therefore, we are now taking this step, and it is a pretty tough thing. We are looking at exactly how this will be implemented but it is about to reduce by approximately 1 000 posts per year over a period of three to four years, says ceo Håkan Ericsson to TT.

in Total the group has 35, 000 employees in Denmark and Sweden. According to Håkan Ericsson, it is currently not up to date with some similar measures for the Swedish part.

– We have reduced the number of services in Sweden during a number of years. We will continue to do, but can handle it in a more natural way with the departures. In Denmark we have reached a point where it is not possible anymore.

He can sum up another tough year for Postnord, which has developed into a real problem child for the owners, the Danish and the Swedish state, which in turn can not expect any dividends this year either.

a Total report Postnord a loss of eur 1 012 million before tax for the fourth quarter of 2016 after the major profitability problems, especially when the right in Denmark, where the digitisation is made that mail volumes continue to plummet. Costs of the cuts in Denmark is also expected to be large since a part of the employees will have several years ‘ salary in severance pay. How big the total cost will be able to Håkan Ericsson did not say in the present.

– It is a challenging situation. Underlying earnings in Denmark, is a loss and we expect that it will continue, ” he says.

TT: What would happen if brevvolymen reduced in Sweden in the same way as in Denmark?

” We do not expect that to happen here in the same way as in Denmark. It would, however, be a fall of 20 per cent in Denmark, it would mean big changes-even in Sweden.

In 2016, the company has been at the centre of a kritikerstorm about the lack of mail service. And with prime minister Stefan Löfven went hard for the company’s procurement of sub-contractors who in turn have no collective agreement.

According to the daily News, is now working the government with a emergency plan for Postnord. It should be concern that the company will be a new “Nuon”, that is to say, the problem of the appropriate state Waterfall which made huge losses after the purchase of Dutch Nuon.

” I have no comments to the data. We have an open and good dialogue between the board and the owners. Emergency plan may be for consumers, ” says Håkan Ericsson.

TT: How do you see the concerns that the merger means a new “Nuon”?

– we Had not been together, had we not had the amazing position we have when it comes to logistics and e-commerce.

Håkan Ericsson calls instead for a more modern postlagsstiftning, then there is a price cap in the current law related to consumer indexes at the same time, such as wage and transport costs are not linked to the consumer price index.

– We see in front of us to a share of the business will not be able to be delivered over night with profitability. It means that 80 per cent of the letters will arrive over night while 10-15% takes a day.

Kronfågels ceo: ”We understand the concerns” – Aftonbladet

In the autumn of 2016 was 30 per cent of chickens in the Kronfågels large slaughterhouse infected by campylobacter.

the Boxes, the chickens were transported in washed by mistake in the contaminated water, which explains the high smittotalen.

– We fixed the immediate error and the levels have, according to our own first measurements have returned to low levels since then, ” says Magnus Lagergren, ceo of Kronfågel.

Kronfågel is the largest producer of fresh chicken in Sweden, with approximately 50 per cent of the market.

the Internal documents, whistleblowers, and government officials have been told about flaws in activities, not least the ide employee working environment.

But the principal union safety representative at the company referred all questions from Aftonbladet to the management.

Below is an interview with Magnus Lagergren, ceo of Kronfågel.

How much of a problem has Kronfågel with campylobacter?

– In Sweden, was the industry’s average for campylobacter 15 per cent in 2016, according to the State veterinary institute. The levels in the Kronfågels chicken low in 2016, at a total of 19.9 per cent. In 2015, we were about 13 per cent. In most other countries outside the Nordic countries is the levels of 30 to 90 percent.

Kronfågel had low values in the first half of 2016, but during the fall and winter we saw an increase to about 30 percent in the plant in Valla, which initially was explained by a warmer autumn than normal, which favors the presence of the bacterium.

Why increased infection with 30%?

– Now at the end of January, we found, after many bugs, the main reason for the increase in the levels; an installation error in our new washing plant. In the plant, we wash the boxes that the chicken shipped in from the farms to the slaughterhouse. The boxes, which the live animals were transported in, came in contact with the used wash water on the basis of installationsfelet. The plant, which is modern, highly efficient and technically complex, is a big investment we made to improve the quality of our production.

What responsibility do you think you have for the increased spread of infection?

– We are the market leader in Sweden and has, of course, a great responsibility. What we can see so have the levels of campylobacter gone back now but we continue to make continuous and comprehensive sampling and will continue to work hard to keep the levels so low it just goes. We naturally look over our routines for something similar not to happen again. We really do understand that you are concerned of campylobacter, but one can feel completely safe with Swedish chicken when you cook it according to the instructions, and have good kitchens hygiene.

it is True that approximately 1.6 million chickens are discarded in 2016?

– Yes. The figure represents 3.2 per cent of all the chickens. That they for different reasons are rejected based on Nfa rules. Decision on cassation is also made and implemented by the Nfa in place. We understand that it may sound like a big number, but we and the Nfa will never compromise with food safety or the quality of our products.

How many chickens with broken wings come to the slaughterhouse?

In 2016 came less than 1 per cent of the chickens to the slaughterhouse with damaged wings. It is the equivalent of about two thousand a day. It is a normal figure for the industry but our objective is obviously to reduce the figure to zero in cooperation with our carriers and other partners in the production chain. Vingskadekontroller is made on each incoming flock. It is stickkontroller performed.

How to comment on you notification of prosecution against one of your carriers that the county administrative board in Sörmland did a few weeks ago?

– Unfortunately, we lack sufficient information about this specific case in order to be able to express ourselves in the moment. But of course, we are keen to create as good conditions for our animals as possible, and therefore, we continually develop our vehicles.

is it True that the two employees shall verify 13,200 chickens per hour on slaktlinan in Valla?

– Control is carried out by a total of six inspectors from the Swedish national Food administration; four trained veterinärbiträden during the review of two official veterinarians. Staffing is determined entirely by the Nfa as supervisory authority.

it is True that some employees have to work with gas masks in Valla order to disinfect the plant with strong chemicals?

– the Establishment uses only approved cleaning agents to food production. In connection with the update of the cleaning process we used in a short period of the masks. However, this is not a requirement when using this detergent and today, none of the staff face masks what we know. If someone has been sickened or been dizzy so, it is of course not good and it should be reported to the immediate manager.

Match the task that you had 111 incidents and accidents at Valla in 2016?

– In 2016, we had 245 reported incidents/risks and 111 accidents in the Herding of various nature, ranging from minor injuries to more severe damage. Of these accidents, three were of serious nature and were notified to the Swedish work environment authority.

the Number of accidents has decreased by 30% compared to 2015, and the number of reported incidents and risks have increased by 172 per cent compared with 2015. We actively encourage our employees to report incidents and risks and has a goal to raise the number of reported incidents and risks with a further 20% in 2017.Inrapporteringar means that we can prevent accidents. We follow the Swedish work environment Authority rules on notifications and have reported all serious accidents and incidents.

Match the task to more employees have been affected by gastro – intestinal diseases?

– No, not according to our own sjukanmälnings-statistics. The long-term trend if you look a few years back in time is, on the contrary, the number of sjukanmälningar because of magåkommor has decreased a couple of percentage points. We constantly informs our employees about food hygiene, to prevent the risk of not being sick.

the Company has in the end of 2015, has been criticised by the Swedish work environment authority at several points in the work environment. Comment?

– Arbetsmiljöinspektion are made continuously on all businesses to help companies to ensure a professional work environment. It is true that the Swedish work environment authority pointed out deficiencies in the us in 2015. We then made an extensive work to fix them and got after it approved on all points of the work environment. We have had two inspections with only minor discrepancies that we addressed.

How would you describe the working environment at the company?

– Our staff is of course extremely important to us and we take care of everyone to feel good. We work systematically with the working environment under the working environment act. We have an organization that ensures that this happens. It consists of our leaders, safety representatives and arbetsmiljöspecialist (support to the managers and security organisation). Obviously, we as a company develop and become better in the work environment and, therefore, is a dialogue with the leaders and safety representatives important.

Swedish companies use in Iran.

the Swedish companies are queuing up to establish themselves in Iran. Some of the market’s largest companies are represented at prime minister Stefan Löfvens visit in the country the coming weekend. But a few simple shops, it is not.

Astra Zeneca Sweden-ceo Jan-Olof Jacke want to come home with a finished agreement. Arkivbild.Image: Henrik Montgomery/TT

the pharmaceutical company Astra Zeneca, Sweden-president’s trip to Iran a very concrete goal: To come home with a ready-made agreement that makes it possible to increase exports to Iran.

– We have been there during the whole sanktionstiden. It is a small affair for us in the present, but it is a country with 80 million people and the underserved medical needs, ” says Jan-Olof Jacke.

the First step to scale up the business was taken when he was with minister Gabriel Wikström’s trip to Iran in december, when Astra Zeneca, and iranian medicines agency wrote in a so-called letter of intent. The idea is that the production of certain goods shall take place in Iran, a requirement that authorities set.

the Sanctions against Iran were suspended last winter. But so far Swedish exports have not taken off, the fell rather in 2016.

Magnus Almén is the head of the quasi-public Business Sweden in Iran, as in the days doors open to a newly set-up office in the capital Tehran. The office would have been opened already for half a year ago, but the interest from the companies has been so great that they were forced to look for other premises.

the Value of the exports to Iran have in recent years remained at around two billion a year, compared to 7-8 before the sanctions.

“We hope and believe it can quickly get up in the levels again, or even more,” says Magnus Almén.

All that come with on the trip do not have an equally clear agenda that Jan-Olof Jacke.

” We have no business in Iran at present, and to evaluate what opportunities exist, say for instance, a spokesperson for Volvo Cars.

the Bank SEB, is with for to inform themselves.

” Our task is to support the business. We have a close cooperation with the companies which are our customers, ” says press officer Laurence Westerlund.

There is still no easy country to do business in, ” says Magnus Almén. The biggest challenges related to the financial sector, as it is still affected by the remaining u.s. sanctions, ” he says.

– Iran has opened up, it is still a little hard to get through the transactions in the way that Swedish exporters are accustomed to.

Jan-Olof Jacke in the Astra Zeneca does not expect any immediate effects.

“You may think of this as building a long-term platform,” he says.

Iran is also a country where corruption is widespread.

” For us it is quite simple. We must act with full global ethical principles. We did not feel that there is such a problem, which is preventing us from doing business in Iran, absolutely not, ” says Jacke.

the Facts: Sweden’s exports to Iran

The Swedish exports to Iran have in recent years remained at around sek 2 billion per year. Before the sanctions were the 6-7 billion. Business Sweden, the assessment is that it can increase to 10-12 billion within 5-6 years.

in 2006, the UN security council strict trade sanctions against Iran. The background was that Iran is suspected of enriching uranium in order to manufacture nuclear weapons. The united states and the EUROPEAN union also imposed its own sanctions, which were directed particularly against the country’s energy sector. The majority of the sanctions were lifted a year ago, but u.s. sanctions that affect the ability to financial transactions remain.

Iran’s economy is forecast by the IMF and the world Bank have a growth rate of around 5 percent in the coming years. Inflation has been squeezed down to under 10 per cent, from earlier times has been above 40 percent.

Iran is counted as a very corrupt country by Transparency International. The country came in at number 131 on the organization’s list of levels of corruption, where the worst countries are at the bottom. Sweden is number 4.
