Public Affairs Working Group
With the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union at the beginning of the year, Sweden lost one of its best friends within the European community. The United Kingdom is one of Sweden’s most important trading partners - still, and often the first stepping stone for Swedish businesses growing outside of the Nordic home markets. Both countries are also close allies on trade policy. The purpose of the group is to take the lead on establishing an agenda with regards to actions or initiatives which could help strengthen Swedish-British business exchange, promotion or trade. The group is chaired by Viveka Hirdman-Ryrberg, Head of Corporate Communication & Sustainability at Investor AB.
