Welcome to seminar and launch 12 Sep at the Stockolm School of Economics for the new book Ericsson and China – A Lasting Relationship (Business History Publishing, 2018). Ericsson veterans Lars A Stålberg and Per-Olof Björk share story and their experiences of how the telecom company Ericsson has cultivated its relationship with China for over 125 years. At the seminar, you will also meet several other China experts and researchers.
Ericsson established contacts with China already in 1892, delivering their first products only two years later. This means that Ericsson’s relationship with China spans over 125 years. Few other global companies – or nations, for that matter – have a longer history with China. And this in an industry known for rapid technological development and many company mergers.
