The Swedish Ambassador visits Atlanta
The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce Georgia proudly presented the Swedish Ambassador to the United States, Mr. Jonas Hafstrom on January 25th – 26th. The Ambassador has served in Washington, DC since 2007 after three years as Ambassador of Sweden to Thailand.
The Ambassador arrived to Atlanta on Wednesday January 25th, together with Minister Counselor Magnus Ryden and the President of SACC-USA Therese Linde. During the day the party visited one of SACC-Georgia’s oldest and most loyal corporate members; Thomas Concrete. A stop was later made at the office of Atlanta’s Mayor Mr. Kasim Reed. The evening continued with a very special and exclusive event, some of SACC-Georgia’s corporate members got the opportunity to sit down with the Ambassador at a round table discussion. Later on the event was opened up for the entire SACC-Georgia network, to meet and greet with our Ambassador.
On Thursday the 26th the Ambassador’s party had an appointment to meet with Georgia Governor, Nathan Deal at the Capitol. The last stop before heading back to Washington, DC was made at SACC-Georgia’s absolute most important stakeholder, Elekta. As the most generous sponsor of our organization, Elekta was given the opportunity to host the Ambassador for the morning, greeting and addressing Elekta’s staff.
As the Ambassador party now has left Atlanta, we would like to extend our warmest thank you to Ambassador Mr. Jonas Hafstrom and his travel party; Mr. Magnus Ryden and Mrs. Therese Linde. We truly hope that more of these opportunities will emerge to keep giving our members extended value and reason to stay a member with our expansive network.
Until then, keep an eye out for upcoming events and keep in mind that being involved with our organization does give you exclusive opportunities like the one described above.
