2019 is coming to its end and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all members and relations for your loyal support in 2019 which has made it possible for the Swedish Chamber to once again present a fantastic business program with more than 1500 participants getting connected to discuss important topics and solutions in different fields from AI and tech to sustainability, circular economy, gender equality, HR and mobility.
We have had many highlights and collaborations with the Swedish Embassy such as Circular Economy Summit, Swedish Dad’s exhibition and the last but not least the successful TechBridge Sweden – the Netherlands Women in Tech. But also, inspiring collaborations with our colleagues from other Nordic Chambers by our Annual NordicTalks witch this year covered Artificial Intelligence. But most of all we appreciated the valuable collaborations with the many member companies during the year!
In 2020 the Swedish Chamber of Commerce is celebrating 60 years anniversary in the Netherlands. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the Netherlands is the ultimate platform for entrepreneurs and businesses within the Swedish-Dutch business community. Founded in 1960 – by business and for business – we have represented, inspired and promoted our members, extended commercial relations between our countries, and delivered first-class services and events for 60 years! Sweden and the Netherlands celebrate centuries of friendship and trade, and our business and political spheres are tightly interlinked as a result of it.
In November 2020 we are therefore planning for a Swedish-Dutch 60 year Anniversary Summit and Gala Dinner celebrating Swedish Innovation where we will look at our joint future ahead, the challenges, and how we can learn from each other. The Summit will be about 21st-century Innovation bringing together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians and academics from both Sweden and the Netherlands to address the greater trends facing us, from tech to climate change, the future workforce or global trade.
The Anniversary year will be highlighted in November 2020 but throughout the whole year we would like to underline the anniversary and the good relations between Sweden and the Netherlands and the excellent business platform of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce built up during the years and to be continued for the future.
We welcome all our members to take part and to take this opportunity to highlight your company, products, and services.
