(NYSE: ALV and SSE: ALIVsdb), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, appoints Sng Yih as new President of Autoliv China and member of the Autoliv executive management team.

Mr. Sng Yih is an automotive industry veteran with extensive experience in leading large organizations, achieving customer satisfaction, and generating value. He brings a broad functional experience and a background of creating the most favourable conditions possible for both internal and external partners.
"I am very pleased to welcome Sng Yih, who I expect will bring valuable knowledge and perspectives to Autoliv.
