Germany Must Respect Rules - Olofsson

Published fredag 29 maj 2009 kl 20.35
Enterprise Minister Maud Olofsson

The EU has backed calls from Sweden's Enterprise Minister Maud Olofsson for Germany to avoid paying state aid to prop up General Motors subsidiary Opel while a buyer can be found.

After a meeting in Brussels, EU representatives agreed to respect the Union's rules on state aid in their handling of the auto crisis affecting the subsidiaries of GM including Sweden's Saab.

Opel emplys 25,000 people in Germany, and chancellor Angela Merkel is under pressure to protect jobs.

But speaking in Brussels, Sweden's Minister for Enterprise, said it was important that germany clarified its plans

"I think it's very important that we get information from the Germans because they have negotiated now with GM and i'm not informed and many other ministers are not informed either."
