Promoting Swedish exports is one of the Government’s focus areas. It’s an important part of getting more people into work and to safeguard Swedish welfare. “Team Sweden” is an umbrella made up of public authorities, government agencies and companies that all work to promote Swedish exports abroad. At home, Team Sweden is led by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Abroad, a local “Team Sweden” led by the Swedish Ambassador will assist companies around the world.
Through “Team Sweden” the Government can provide coordinated and effective export support to Swedish companies that want to set up operations abroad, making entry into the export market clear and simple. The export support includes advisory services, financing, marketing and the long-term promotion of Sweden.
