Swedish Joint Consortium Wins Big Thai Jet Order

Published fredag 8 oktober 2004 kl 15.49

A Swedish-British consortium has beaten off competion from a Russian firm to supply jet fighters to Thailand in a deal worth 230 million dollars.

The details will be ironed out when a Swedish government delegation travels to Thailand later this month.

In September, Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra told Swedish counterpart Goran Persson , that Thailand would buy Swedish fighter jets only if Sweden agreed to buy agricultural products in exchange.

Sweden’s Saab is eager to secure a contract to sell about 20 JAS 39 Gripen fighters, made with Britain’s BAE Systems, to the Thai air force and Thaksin said he was ready to buy ”whenever the Swedish company can deliver”.
