Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei (SCCT) works to promote and assist Swedish and Sweden-related companies on the Taiwanese market.

By studying and advancing the commercial and industrial relations between Sweden and Taiwan, we are able to provide our member companies with a platform for making their voices heard among decision-makers.

We put significant time and effort into promoting Sweden culturally, as strengthening the Sweden brand is of high importance and value both to us and our member companies. This goal is achieved by arranging trade fairs providing marketing opportunities for our brands and the Sweden brand in general. Our biggest such event is the annual Sweden Day Taiwan event.

We also organize events of a more social nature. These events are aimed both at the Swedish community here in Taiwan and people of other nationalities with an interest in Sweden. They include midsummer celebrations and an annual crayfish party and can be seen as part of our cultural mission.

In short, we connect Sweden and Taiwan.

Event Details

Lucia − the bearer of light

Alongside Midsummer, the Lucia celebrations represent one of the foremost cultural traditions in Sweden, with their clear reference to life in the peasant communities of old: darkness and light, cold and warmth. Lucia is an ancient mythical figure with an abiding role as a bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters.


The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Taipei keeps the tradition alive and in collaboration with the Swedish School in Taiwan and all merry Swedes in Taiwan we look forward to welcoming you to the church in Tianmu on December 9th at 5 PM for a very traditional Lucia celebration. We have invited priest Olof Olsson from the Swedish church in Bangkok, to hold a traditional church service after children from the Swedish School and the community have welcomed you all with lucia songs. You will be served mulled wine, coffee, juice, gingerbread cookies and hopefully other Swedish goodies we hope to find during this special time.


As it's a small and cozy church with limited seating, we ask you to register your participation using the link.


Tickets for parents with child/ren attending The Swedish School of Taiwan are free.



Lucia - ljusets bärare

Vid sidan av Midsommar representerar Luciafirandet en av de främsta kulturella traditionerna i Sverige, med en tydlig hänvisning till livet i gamla bondesamhällen: mörker och ljus, kyla och värme.


Svenska Handelskammaren Taipei håller på traditionerna och i samarbete med Svenska Skolan i Taiwan och alla glada svenskar i Taiwan ser vi fram emot att välkomna Er till kyrkan i Tianmu den 9:e december kl 17:00 för traditionsenligt Luciafirande. Vi har bjudit hit prästen Olof Olsson från Svenska Kyrkan i Bangkok, för att förgylla eftermiddagen med traditionsenligt luciagudstjänst efter att barnen från Svenska Skolan och vårt community har välkomnat oss med luciatåg. Det bjuds på glögg, kaffe, saft, pepparkakor och förhoppnings andra svenska godsaker vi hoppas kunna lokalisera i Taiwan under denna speciella tid.


Då antalet platser i kyrkan är begränsade ber vi dig anmäla ditt deltagande via länken.


Biljetter för föräldrar med barn i Svenska Skolan Taiwan är gratis.
