State Visit to Germany

H.M King Carl XVI Gustaf and H.M Queen Silvia will pay a State Visit to Germany on 5-8 October 2016 at the invitation of Federal President Joachim Gauck. The government will be represented by Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström and Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg.

The State Visit is an opportunity to further strengthen the close political, cultural and economic ties between Sweden and Germany. Innovation, sustainability and transparency are the main themes of the visit.

Germany is Sweden's most important trading partner and a Swedish business delegation led by Ylva Berg, CEO of Business Sweden, will partake in the State Visit. For Swedish companies, the State Visit provides an opportunity to build on the already strong trade relations.

The four-day visit will take place in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Wittenberg and Leipzig. More information about the program and participants will be published closer to the visit.
