Asia Expedition 2022/2023

EKN and Vinnova join Götheborg as partners

Today, we are proud to announce that two great stakeholders in Swedish export and innovation, EKN and Vinnova, have partnered with Götheborg to promote Swedish export. They will use the ship as a platform to promote both trade and a message of sustainable innovations, and we look forward to providing a platform where their relevant markets are.


EKN and Vinnova join Götheborg as partners

The Swedish Export and Credit Agency (EKN), is commissioned by the Swedish government to promote Swedish business abroad, by insuring export companies and banks against the risk of non-payment in export transactions. This Asia Expedition 2022/2023 will create unique meeting places across the world for Swedish businesses, and EKN is partnering to offer attractive financing solutions and promoting Swedish exports.

Vinnova will focus on promoting Swedish innovation in Asia and India foremost, primarily driving the message of sustainable solutions to create a better future. As Sweden’s innovation agency, Vinnova works to enhance their collaboration with India and the blossoming innovative market there. 

During the 2022 part of the Asia Expedition, EKN will focus on the stopover in London. Vinnova will join as partner to an event hosted by Götheborg of Sweden and Dagens Industri, to be held on the departure day from Gothenburg, 8 June 2022. The event will focus on new business opportunities for Swedish companies, and how innovation and sustainability are key to the growth of Swedish companies in international markets.

We're really pleased to have these two great stakeholders on board to Asia. Welcome!
