|With Catarina Reuter|
We could meet and make a few more Swedish friends in the process. One of them was Catarina Reuter, siting by my side on our table, a vivacious and gracious lady. She struck friendship with us in no time. Catarina and her husband are doing business with India since long. They import textiles, brassware and also traditional and old furniture etc. and visit India once every year for the purpose. Catarina was quite frank and told me that though they were happy to do business with India yet it would be better if the Indian exporters start conforming to international business norms and standards. Her main complaint was non-adherence to delivery schedules. I hope Indian exporters would take note of it. I checked with her whether I could write about this in my blog ? She said yes, do so. Catarina wished to be my friend on the Facebook. I said it would be my pleasure. We exchanged visiting cards. Today in the early morning, August 16, I opened my Facebook account and to my pleasant surprise there was a friendship request from Catarina. Now we are friends on the Facebook too. God bless her.
With this I close My Stockholm Diary. Bye Bye Stockholm. Bye Bye Sweden, a beautiful country of friendly people.
