PRIVATIZATION OF COMPANIES IN SWEDEN

I really hope that we are "at the crossroads" in Sweden and we are ready start to privatize state owned businesses in the near future. Will the Alliance learn from the history and other countries? We could look at Hungary and the rest of Eastern Europe as how to get the business climate "flying high"... So, which companies are on the list? Here is an excerpt from the article, Sweden's shift to right points to privatisation.

There won'’t be definitive list of privatisations until long after the party's officials have taken their places in the ministries at the start of next month. But local bankers see the mortgage provider SBAB, real estate firm Vasakronan, and drinks manufacturer Vin & Spirit (which makes Absolut Vodka) as first in line. (TheBusinessOnline.com, 09/24/06.)


Could we have an Absolut vodka with Pernod / licorice flavor in the near future? Maybe it is time to celebrate with a HOT AND SPICY PICK ME UP DRINK?
