Swedish telecommunication giant Ericsson on Monday got a big order from China Mobile, according to a report from Svenska Dagbladet.

During the Sweden-China Business Cooperation and Innovation Forum being held with presence of Chinese vice President Xi Jinping and Swedish Deputy Prime Minister Maud Olofsson, China Mobile and China Unicom both gave an order from Ericsson worthy of 180 million dollars, the report said.

The money will be used to upgrade China's telecommunication operation to 2G and 3G which is expected to reach 130 million customers, according to Eriksson's information.

The two agreements are expected to be carried out this year.

Meanwhile, also during Vice President Xi's visit, Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt announced that Sweden will establish a CSR center in the Swedish Embassy in Beijing to help workers to protect their rights.

To help improving democracy, human rights and Corporate Social Responsibilities in China are part of Sweden's new strategy in selective cooperation with China and its aid to China.
