    Volvo CEO Says Company May Leave Sweden Partly Due To Rise in Violent Crime

    Zerohedge

    (...)

    We are building cars, we cannot solve the other problems, someone else must do that,” the CEO said, adding that it is becoming more difficult to attract workers due to Sweden’s worsening reputation.

    “It’s definitely not helping when people read about shootings in Gothenburg and wonder if they really dare to move to Gothenburg,” said Samuelsson.

    If the situation does not improve, the CEO warned that the company may even have to consider leaving Sweden in the future.

    “Often people believe that decisions like these are taken by senior management or in China. But the fact is that we will only place our headquarters in a country where things work. At the moment, we are not close to such a discussion. But yes, it is something that might happen in the future,” said Samuelsson.

    However, Chief of Police in Gothenburg County Erik Nord denied there was a problem, accusing Samuelsson of getting misinformation from social media.

    As we have previously highlighted, surveys show that migrants are vastly overrepresented in violent crime and rapes in Sweden, but the government stopped gathering official statistics back in 2005.

    LOL. Where they would move?

    Together with Göteborg they have factories in Belgium, China and USA (South-Carolina)
    (and smaller putting together factories in India and Malaysia).

    Maybe to China (owner: Zhejiang Geely Holding Company).

    Sounds like an interesting slightly indirect way for this CEO to say and pressure his point about what has happened to Sweden due to too much uncontrolled open immigration of so-called "refugees".

    Maybe economic pressure like this will get the politicians and populace to get behind ending and reversing a lot of this negative "immigration".

    -----------

    Then again looking at Volvo on Wikid-pedia reveals this factoid


    "It is headquartered on Torslanda in Gothenburg, and is a subsidiary of the Chinese automotive company Geely."

    (so what Finnish Swede said above "Maybe to China (owner: Zhejiang Geely Holding Company).")


    Hmmm, so apparently Volvo isn't really Swedish owned ... well you learn something new every day.



    So perhaps the Chinese parent company has ill feelings about the economic impact of all this "immigration" crime increase. Perhaps it will take pressure from China to get Sweden to change LOL.
