On May 24, 2022, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce hosted the Chamber Luncheon on May 24, 2022. We felt very privileged that nearly all Board members and new Board member candidates were able to join the Chamber Luncheon at Hilton Hotel and for contributing with great networking opportunities.

At this Chamber Luncheon, we listened to Mr. Adjiedj Bakas, Trendwatcher, Visionary, Speaker and Author, addressing serious topics such as the current geopolitical landscape and the impact of the war in Ukraine, climate change and green recovery as well as the digital revolution and the global economy post pandemic.


During this session Mr. Bakas was talking about how we are no longer living in times of change but in a change of times. From history, we know that all great changes are preceded by chaos or disorder. The corona pandemic shook up the old world order and now we have entered the Age of Chaos and this will redefine our future. Enhanced digitalization, robotization, nano-technology, and new energy technology will lead to a new industrial revolution in areas such as healthcare, food, transportation, global supply chains, traveling, infrastructure and manufacturing according to Mr. Bakas. Further, he shared his thought about how we will adapt to viruses and pandemics, which will continue haunting us.


All participants received a signed copy of Mr. Baka’s book “The Age of Chaos”.


We want to extend a warm thank you to Mr. Adjiedj Bakas for his inspirational speech and to everyone that participated in this Chamber Luncheon.





Adjiedj Bakas (1963) is a highly acclaimed trendwatcher, author and speaker with roots in India, Latin-America and Europe.
