Chinese visit Saab plant
Representatives of the Chinese Hawtai car company planning to invest large sums in the troubled Dutch-owned Swedish car producer Saab are at the company's west coast factory at Trollhätten - to observe the production of 15 tests cars for the Chinese market.
Saab's production line has been closed down for the last month because of the refusal of subcontractors to deliver parts until they have received payment.
Some subcontractors say they want guarantees of faster payment before they renew deliveries.
Meanwhile, the Swedish embassy in Beijing has criticized the Chinese company's boss as an erratic millionaire making too-hasty decisions and exaggerating the number of cars produced in the company's brief, one-year history.
