Companies worried about prospects of Swedish criticism of China

Swedish companies are worried that the government will criticise China and trigger a diplomatic crisis in the same way as with Saudi Arabia, says Irena Busic, CEO of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China, ahead of Stefan Löfven’s meeting with Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang, and President Xi Jinping, on Friday. Busic expressed her concerns to news bureau TT: “China is such a large and important market for Swedish companies that it would be devastating if something happens in the relationship between the two countries.”
