Lars Danielsson

Shunned Top Diplomat Offered New Job

Lars Danielsson, former Swedish Prime Minister Göran Persson’s right hand man has been offered the jobb as Sweden’s General Consul in Hong Kong.

Danielsson faced major criticism of his handling of the 2004 Asian Tsunami, and when the centre-right government took power in 2006 was basically left without any work to do at his home department, the Foreign Ministry. Danielsson has worked as a diplomat for over 30 years.
