He was pleased with the meeting of GM’s board, but did not reveal whether he was more or less optimistic after the meeting than before.

– We have had good conversations. It was a very good mood. Now we see how far it is enough. It is GM, which owns Saab, and it is GM, which owns the process.

Hagglund described GM’s board members as “responsive”.
