image: Prepared for Doing Business with the Baltic States Prepared for Doing Business with the Baltic States Headlined ‘Do Business with the Baltic States’ the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce arranged a morning seminar in their new premises in downtown Stockholm, Tuesday, March 18th.

The seminar was organized in cooperation with the Swedish Chambers of Commerce in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as several other important organizations and government agencies.

Bengt Dennis - the former governor of Riksbanken, Sweden’s Central Bank, and nowadays a senior advisor at East Capital – commenced the seminar and gave an overview of the successful economic development during the past 20 years in the Baltics and stressed
the need to increase the competitiveness in all countries in order to continue the success story.

Anders Rune - chief economist at Teknikföretagen, a lobby- and employers’ organization for 3.600 Swedish engineering companies – continued and gave an overview of Swedish companies already doing business in the Baltics.

The following three speakers; Claes Mellgren - AQ Group/AQ Lasertool, Kent Petersson - Dinair Filton, and Ingrid Schuster – Sweco, all represented Swedish companies being active in the Baltic States since quite some years. All three speakers agreed that doing business in the Baltics has been and still is profitable, despite snags and problems in the beginning.

The seminar was rounded up by Annette Magnusson from the Swedish Arbitration Institute at the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, who presented the Institute and their international experiences.

- In general, Swedes usually know rather little about the Baltics and the Pan-Baltic approach of the seminar was appreciated by the participants. Thank you very much for a well organized seminar with interesting speakers and presentations as well as good networking possibilities, comments Thomas Mielke – managing director at Leinonen Sweden

(, ).

On behalf of the SCCE Council, I would like to thank the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce for arranging this highly appreciated seminar, and I look forward to more seminars of this kind to come – both in Sweden and in Estonia.
