Sweden to Spend USD 200,000 on St. Petersburg's 300th Anniversary Celebrations - 13 September, 2002 - News

The Swedish Government yesterday decided to allocate around USD 200,000 to the Swedish Council for Foreign Trade in order to hold a series of events during St. Petersburg's 300th anniversary celebrations. According to Sweden's government chancellery, part of this money will be spent on an information technology week in St. Petersburg in 2003, with the participation of telecommunications company Ericsson and Stockholm's Royal Polytechnical Institute.

Commenting on today's welcome decision, Swedish Trade Minister Leif Pagrotsky said that this type of event should help further strengthen relations between Sweden and Russia, creating a foundation for the development of new business relations.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
