SCC Patrons’ Dinner at Residence

On Thursday a great number of representatives from the Swedish business community gathered for the Swedish Chamber of Commerce (SCC) annual Patrons’ dinner at the Swedish residence. It was a great group of people representing many different companies like SKF, Stena, IKEA, AstraZeneca, Handelsbanken, SEB, Volvo, Scania Trucks and Skanska. The Swedish investments in the UK are significant and create more than 100,000 UK jobs. It is always a pleasure to meet with representatives of Swedish companies and I noted that an overwhelming majority of the guests at this year’s Patrons’ dinner were actually British.

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce (SCC) is very active in the UK and the number of events that they organize each year is very impressive. We are very grateful to the chairman Beatrice Bondy Engström as well as to the Director Ulla Nilsson, who do a fantastic job for the Chamber.
