The Swedish Chamber of Commerce regrets to inform with reference to the new restrictions regarding the Corona situation presented by the Dutch government at the Press conference on Friday, November 12, 2021, it has been forced to postpone the Swedish Chamber of Commerce 60th Anniversary Innovation and Sustainability Summit and Gala Dinner on November 18, to a date in 2022.

The new restrictions affect our program both in the afternoon and in the evening, which therefore cannot take place. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a warm thank you to all who have been involved for their great collaboration and contribution. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience for all concerned and hope for your understanding. We hope to be able to resume planning the event in 2022 and to come back with more information as soon as possible.

Stefan Löfven resigns as PM of Sweden

On November 10, Stefan Löfven handed in his resignation as Prime Minister of Sweden, which was quite expected since he stepped down as party leader of the Social Democrats two weeks ago.

At the party’s congress held during the same week, Magdalena Andersson, currently Finance Minister, was elected to replace Löfven as leader of the Social Democrats. This paves the way for her to become the country’s first woman Prime Minister if she wins a vote in parliament. There is no date set for the vote yet.
