Smart and Sustainable Sweden: Mutual Trade Opportunities with a Nordic Friend

< Back to Events

September 18, 2018
Dorsey & Whitney, Minneapolis

3:30 - 5:00 pm

Did you know that Sweden aims to be one of the first fossil-free welfare nations and that its future energy system is to be based on 100 percent renewable energy? And yet, Sweden is still very much a manufacturer-- with more global manufacturing companies per capita than any country in the world. So how will they do this?
 
Join the Minnesota Trade Office on September 18 to hear from Sweden's Ambassador to the United States Karin Olofsdotter on this question and to get an update on the current bilateral trade picture between Sweden and the United States-- a relationship that generates cumulative bilateral investment valued at about $75 billion.
 
This briefing will also feature local experts on trade and sustainability issues. A representative of IKEA— Sweden’s well known retailer— will tell us how they set and achieve sustainability goals. Finally, insights on best markets in Sweden for Minnesota companies will be shared.
