I accepted the role as Honorary Consul for the Kingdom of Sweden in order to try and ‘do something for the old country in the new country’. The old Kingdom of Sweden was one of the first trading partners of our young republic. A treaty of friendship and trade was signed between the United States and Sweden as early as 1783! Sweden and the US have continued to enjoy a great friendship over the centuries, and I am happy to report that today the relationship between the two nations is as good as ever.

The Swedish chamber plays a key role in promoting the relationships that are critical in developing and expanding business opportunities between Sweden and Florida. The State of Florida provides a gateway for Swedish companies wishing to expand their business in Latin America and the Caribbean. But let us not forget Florida itself, a growing economy, now the fourth largest state in the union, and as we all know a fabulous place to live.

Successful business ventures are based on building mutually beneficial relationships and the Swedish chamber continues to do an outstanding job in creating opportunities for Swedish-related businesses in Florida to network with local businesses.

Florida is an exciting part of the US, new ventures and new business relationships are being built every day. In my current ‘day job’ as CEO of Kemet Corporation, we have many business relationships with Sweden and the Nordic countries. I am convinced that with the help of the Chamber, relationships like the ones I see personally will evolve in a very positive manner.

I am focused on doing my part, in my new role as Consul, to help move our agenda forward. I want to thank our board of directors for their dedication and contribution to the chamber. I look forward to working with all of you and meeting my fellow Swedes in the region.

Per-Olof Lööf
Honorary Consul of Sweden
