THE SWEDISH Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia celebrated its 10th anniversary by throwing a party for more than 150 guests.
The reception was held at the Radisson SAS Carlton Hotel in Bratislava on November 7.
The chamber was originally established by 12 companies, but since 1997 it has grown to 43 companies. These companies employ more than 8,000 people in Slovakia, and their combined turnover was more than Sk28 billion (€851.4 million) in 2006.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce counts some well-known companies among its members: Ikea, Oriflame, ABB, AstraZeneca, Husqvarna, Electrolux, Ericsson, Volvo Truck, Scania, and SCA Hygiene.
The purpose of the chamber is to support, promote and assist Swedish business interests in Slovakia. It gives its members opportunities for networking and organises various social events, but is also involved in lobbying. The lobbying is mostly done in cooperation with other national chambers.
