ABOUT THE EVENT

Team Sweden in Southeast Asia is proud to present the inaugural “Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit” that will take place in Singapore on the 21–22 of September 2016.

Around 600 Swedish companies across business sectors ranging from service to manufacturing and retail are present in Southeast Asia. The Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit aims to attract business leaders and decision makers from Sweden and the region by providing a platform for sharing of best practices on how to do business in this dynamic part of the world.

Southeast Asia is home to more than 650 million people with a rapidly growing middle class. Despite slowing economic growth in China, the Southeast Asian region is estimated to grow at an average of 5 –6 percent annually in the coming decade, making it the growth engine of the world. The newly established ASEAN Economic Community is likely to enhance growth further.

To be competitive in this evolving global market, it is crucial for any CEO or board member to have a clear understanding of the developments in the region. The Sweden–Southeast Asia Business Summit provides an excellent opportunity to get insights from industry peers and policy experts and to meet with potential partners.

The summit will feature key political and business representatives from Sweden, including Mr Mikael Damberg, Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, Mrs. Ylva Berg, CEO, Business Sweden – the Swedish Trade and Invest Council, Mr Marcus Wallenberg, Chairman of the Board, SEB, SAAB Group & Foundation Asset Management, Mr. Magnus Böcker, Executive Chairman of Blibros and former CEO of Singapore Exchange and many more. The summit is a joint effort by “Team Sweden” in Southeast Asia, i.e., the Swedish Embassies, Business Sweden and the business associations and chambers in the respective countries. We welcome all Swedish businesses in Sweden and the Southeast Asia region to attend this summit.
