About Michigan & Sweden

Since our inception in 1988, we have grown to over 150 members in a strong networking organization with expertise in several business areas. We act as a liaison between contacts from Michigan government and trade organizations in Sweden.

Sweden and the United States have been business partners for 375 years. With the first Swedish trade ship landing in United States in 1668 – it’s easy to see that the bilateral trade relationship between these countries is strong. Today, almost quarter of a million jobs in U.S. can be counted as a product of Swedish companies doing business with American counterparts. Swedish foreign investments, Swedish companies operating in the US and American exports to Sweden are all making large impact on the U.S. economy.
