On March 13, approximately 70 AmCham Sweden members and key stakeholders gathered at the U.S. Ambassador's residence in Stockholm where the long-standing U.S - Swedish relationship, and the current state of trade between the two countries was discussed.

In welcoming remarks, U.S. Chargé d' Affaires David E. Lindwall emphasized the value of the AmCham network for American businesses in Sweden. Citing the depth and breadth of knowledge that business leaders have to share with one another, Lindwall reiterated that the U.S. Embassy stands in support of programs that can positively impact foreign direct investment in both countries.

AmCham Managing Director Peter Dahlen followed with a nod to the past and present by reminding those in attendance that this year marks the 200th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Sweden. Dahlen also noted that it is now nearly 235 years ago that Sweden and the United States executed a Treaty of Amity and Commerce, whereupon Sweden became the first country not directly involved in the Revolutionary War to officially recognize the United States.

Figures from the recently released 2018 Transatlantic Economy Report were among other topics mentioned by Dahlen, including data establishing Stockholm is the 9th most important source of onshore jobs to the U.S. of all European metro regions.
