We would like to thank the outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Sweden, Azita Raji, for her spirit of collaboration, leadership and commitment, particularly in regards to her work with innovation to strengthen the U.S.-Sweden relationship.
In addition to being the first woman appointed to serve as Ambassador to Sweden, Ms. Raji is the first Iranian-born U.S. Ambassador in history. Her dedication to creating an environment of goodwill to facilitate the expansion of transatlantic trade is a legacy that we are proud to recognize.
