: 28 August, 2013  (Company News)
Switzerland has voted in favour of purchasing the Gripen E multirole fighter from Swedish aero manufacturer Saab

The security committee of the National Council (Nationalrat) in the Swiss Parliament has debated and voted “yes” to the procurement of Gripen E.

The committee reached a majority “yes” vote – 14 in favour and 9 against - and it is anticipated that the procurement will progress to the plenum of the Nationalrat for votation in the September session.

“We are naturally very pleased by the decision of the security committee of the Nationalrat. This is a very positive endorsement of the Gripen programme.

Whilst we continue to respect and follow the political process, we also continue to assemble the pre-production Gripen E. Also, our Swiss industrial participation programme aiming at creating business between the suppliers to Saab and Swiss companies is progressing. It has today seen 456 contracts signed between our suppliers and 117 Swiss companies valued at 315 MCHF,” says Lennart Sindahl, Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Saab’s Aeronautics business area.
