First of all we are excited about our collaboration with the Chamber on the Business Climate Survey 2022, and our joint opportunity to include this in the global survey, and this will enable us to compare the Swedish business sentiment with other markets around the globe.
We are seeing continued very strong interest in the Taiwanese market from new entrants, and especially the Swedish Semiconductor Alliance, an alliance created by Business Sweden in collaboration with Smarter Electronics Systems, is generating a lot of interest from Swedish SMEs to explore the local market. We also encourage larger companies to be a part of this effort and we encourage everyone who is interested to get in touch with Business Sweden to know more.
While the virus has curtailed our event schedule in spring, we are gearing up for a busy autumn with events such as our Water by Sweden event in Taichung on 22nd August, the first instalment of our IndTech / Smart Industry Event on the 20th September and Energy Taiwan pavilion on the 19-21st October. We will also host a HR Manager roundtable for Swedish companies on the 22nd June to discuss the current important HR related topics such as recruitment, hybrid work and talent retention.
Last but not least we are pleased to have welcomed two new member to the Business Sweden team, Jack Lai and and Ken Chen who have both joined us as associates in May. Jack comes from Deloitte Consulting and Ken from the market research company Ipsos, and we are excited to have two new such high calibre colleagues onboard.
We wish you all a great May, and we look forward catching up once the current covid wave has settled down”
