Partners and Friends,
We are now taking a step forward to provide leadership on trade and development. Chamber Trade Sweden has rebranded into Make Trade, and we have launched our new website.
We are a “do-tank” which remains committed to our vision and mission:
“Enabling sustainable trade and investment”
“Capacitating more women in international business”
“Promoting trade not aid by strengthening the private sector in developing countries”
We have a handful of exciting projects and initiatives to tell you about. Many of you are familiar with our development work stengthening business capacity in Africa, Indonesia and Iraq, with a strong focus on women’s economic empowerment. Focusing on Swedish business we also run Sweden on the Go, a platform with over 70 qualified international consultants worldwide ready to help companies succeed internationally. We have a unique position in promoting Swedish women in international business through our co-operation with IWEC, International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge, which each year gathers over 40 of the worlds most successful international business women. This year we will also be updating our market intelligence such as providing a new edition of our Swedish Import Handbook guiding SME’s on do’s and don’t on imports. 2019 will also be the year we help business mobilize towards implementing the Agenda 2030 global development goals, with new platforms and instruments.
Making Trade not War is more urgent than ever.
We therefore hope the following stories will inspire you to join us as a Make Trade member!
