Swedish Heads of Mission Meeting

Every year Swedish Heads of Missions spend a week in Sweden to get extensive briefings on politics, economics and trade. This year the meeting started off in Gothenburg where we had the opportunity to meet the Governor of Västra Götaland County Lars Bäckström. In addition several companies in Gothenburg including Volvo, SKF and Astra-Zeneca gave a good overview of their business activities across the world. Once back in Stockholm there was a clear focus on foreign policy, development, defense, economics and trade.

During the final day the Heads of Missions in Europe discussed the latest developments in European Affairs. It was inevitable that a lot of the discussions focused on the EU Summit that was due the next day.
