On May 18, 2016 the Swedish Chamber of Commerce were very honored to welcome Mrs. Kajsa Ollongren as honorary Guest and keynote speaker at the Chamber Luncheon following the Annual General Meeting. Mrs. Ollongren spoke about the exiting Start up scene in Amsterdam and the positive influences by innovative, young upcoming companies to the more settled classical industry and how it opens doors for new co-operations and innovative ideas. She also drew parallels to the start up scene in Stockholm and to the fact that Sweden and the Netherlands have so much in common and can learn a lot from each other by exchanging experiences. After the luncheon H.E. Ambassador Per Holmström addressed the Chamber Members and Guests and asked how can we improve and make it even easier to do business between the Netherlands and Sweden?

Vice-Chairman Ann-Charlotte Runn welcomed new members Eva van Doorn Lans and Paul van Doorn from Eikenzande BV to the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and presented them with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce tie, shawl and flag-pins.
