image: Getting Started 2019: The New Year’s Business Season Kick Off Getting Started 2019: The New Year’s Business Season Kick Off

On Wednesday evening 23 January, Team Sweden (Embassy of Sweden, Business Sweden and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Estonia) gathered at the Ambassador’s Residence in the Swedish Embassy for the 2019 edition of the New Year’s Business Season Kick Off.

Our evening together was started up by Ambassador Mikael Eriksson and SCCE’s Chairman Karolina Ullman who presented the Embassy’s and SCCE’s respective plans and topics for this winter and spring.

Tõnis Arnover continued our Kick Off program by introducing his recently published book Rootsi hiilguses ja varjus (Sweden in splendor and in shadow). Tõnis has translated Swedish literature to Estonian language for nearly 30 years and has also worked as a journalist at the Swedish owned business newspaper Äripäev since many years. Rootsi hiilguses ja varjus is the first book published with himself as the author and it covers Swedish events and personalities since ancient times up until our contemporary days.  

Led by Karolina Ullman and with Jüri Aarma at the grand piano, we concluded our Kick Off by singing songs composed by Sweden’s national troubadour Evert Taube. Quite a number of Evert Taube’s songs are translated to Estonian and thus both our Swedish and Estonian members could, and did indeed, sing along!

On behalf of the SCCE, I would like to thank Ambassador Mikael Eriksson and his team at the Embassy of Sweden for a very nice and cozy evening including a delicious Kick Off buffet. My sincere thanks also go to Tõnis Arnover for guiding us through some of many Swedish events through the years, and to Karolina Ullman and Jüri Aarma for their excellent musical leadership. Last, but not least, my thanks also go to our members who once again really made our Kick Off take off!
