Egypt unrest hits Swedish exports

The unrest in Egypt is starting to hit Swedish companies. The harbour in Alexandria is shut, and ships filled with Swedish timber cannot unload their cargo.

Per Rodert, CEO of Rörvik Timber, says to Swedish Radio News that Egypt is the second biggest buyer from Swedish saw mills, "It is only the English market that is bigger. It means that this is very important for the Swedish timber industry."
