Move Saab Production to Belgium
Flemmish politicians in the Belgium parliament are said to be lobbying for Dutch luxury car maker Spyker to move production from Sweden to Antwerp if they succeed in their latest attempt to buy Saab autos.
The Belgium newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad reports that Flemmish politicians would like Spyker to switch production to GM's current Opel factory in Belgium which is to be shutdown in the same cost cutting measures which have seen the American car giant offload Saab.
Meanwhile, talks are continuing in Stockholm between represenatives of Spyker and General Motors to try and reach agreement on a deal. GM have already begun the process of winding up Saab, which employs 3,400 at its main factory in Trollhättan.
