The Irish Chamber of Commerce in Sweden sends a strong signal of the strength and potential of our economic relations with Sweden. The Chamber, which was formally launched by Ms Josepha Madigan T.D., Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht on 15th March 2018, will have an important role to play in supporting Irish and Swedish businesses and will also provide an important platform to build up personal links not only between Irish and Swedish business professionals but also within the community of Irish business professionals working in Sweden. The Irish Embassy in Stockholm together with Enterprise Ireland and Bord Bia, have been closely engaged with the setting up of the new Chamber and will continue to keep in close contact with the Chamber and to support its activities in the future.
“I am delighted to be Patron of the new Irish Chamber of Commerce in Sweden. I want to extend warmest congratulations and best wishes to the Board of the new Chamber who are all doing this valuable work on a voluntary basis. Ireland has long recognised that our people are our greatest resource and over many decades the Embassy has worked with other local community organisations such as the Swedish-Irish Society, the Stockholm Gaels, Spuds and Sill, the James Joyce Society, whose members are also generously giving of their own time to promote Ireland in Sweden. I am very much looking forward to attending the Brexit Seminar for the Irish and Swedish business communities, which will be the new Chamber’s inaugural event. The high level of the participants including both Simon Coveney T.D., Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign affairs and Trade and Ann Linde, Sweden’s Minister for the EU and Trade, underlines the importance of the role the new Chamber can play in meeting the needs of its members.”
- Her Excellency, the Irish Ambassador to Sweden, Ms Dympna Hayes, Stockholm, March 23rd 2018
