Brussels office

The Brussels office was established in 1974 and supports the Confederation’s experts, as well as those of our member federations, by providing information, advice and communicating with the EU institutions.

The office represents the interests of Swedish business and works closely together with other Swedish and European business representatives in Brussels.

The Brussels office also participates in the formulation of the Confederation’s EU-related policy and is active towards the Swedish government, governmental agencies, and other concerned parties. We regularly prepare and host seminars and other activities.
