Before this event kicked off, Saab arranged a press briefing at the Hilton Hotel in Singapore presenting Saab’s plans for the region in general and particularly for Singapore. Ten journalists from both international and local media attended.

“We had a well-attended event with many questions showing a great interest from the media in what Saab is doing in this region” says Susanne Dalskog, Head of Communications for Saab Asia Pacific.
Earlier the same day Anders Dahl was also interviewed by BBC Asia’s Rico Hizon regarding the expectations of future defence spending in the region.
