As Chairman of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands, I would like to thank H.E. ambassador Mrs. Annika Markovic for hosting the Swedish Chamber of Commerce Annual Patron Dinner in her magnificent residence. It was a great evening with our special Keynote speaker H.E. Dr. Ben Bot former Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs. The Swedish Camber in the Netherlands is grateful and proud to have ambassador Markovic as Honorary Chairwoman and for the excellent and fruitful collaboration through the year. The broad collaboration with the Swedish Embassy enables us to present interesting and relevant programs and events reaching far above the boarders of the Swedish Chambers members only. With topics as Diversity, Circular Economy, Innovation, Women in Tech to name a few, we are able to promote the Swedish Brand in the Netherlands.

The Patrons of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce are of great importance for the Chamber activities. Founded in 2004, the group of Patrons consists of companies close to the Swedish Chamber who are supporting the Chamber mission and activities by contributing supplementary financial funding. Today the Swedish Chamber of Commerce is very proud and honoured to present 30 Patron companies ranging from the retail, financial sector to automotive.

Mr. Ehsan Turabaz, Chairman of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce
