Business of Design Week Hong Kong 2014
Sweden is one of the world's most creative countries with internationally renowned design companies, products and services, and is known to be at the forefront in areas such as fashion and design. Furthermore, Sweden has many companies with high potential to grow abroad and establish their brand in the international arena. Asia is, with its tremendous growth rate and increased interest in design, a very important region for Swedish companies to establish themselves in. Hong Kong is, as the international hub and gateway to China and other parts of the Asian market, a strategic and natural first steps to take.
