BUSINESS DELEGATIONS TO DISASTER RIDDEN AREAS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA

Business Sweden, in collaboration with the Swedish embassy, organises on a regular basis business delegations to Southeast Asia. The delegations provide Swedish companies with the possibility to share their innovations and technical solutions that could assist during crisis and disasters, in addition to networking and establishing relations with local partners and distributors for future collaborations.

When the Philippines was hit by the typhoon Haiyan in November 2013, one of the worst measured tropical cyclones in history, Sweden was one of the countries offering state financial support as well as private aid. Business Sweden arranged in November 2014 a delegation with Swedish companies who presented and shared their knowledge and solutions regarding long-term risk management to aid-organisations in the Philippines.

Another delegation was organised to Manila in December 2015 in order to deepen relations between Swedish companies and aid-organisations such as UNDP, Philippines Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) and Local Climate Change Adaptation for Development (LCCAD). The delegation focused on increased disaster planning for the. Through a workshop and seminars, Swedish companies and Philippine actors could exchange experiences and learn from each other regarding the subject disaster-management. Additionally, it was possible to discuss potential areas of cooperation such as electricity supply, emergency housing, health and hygiene, and lifesaving.
