We have arrived in London, and we were greeted with style by the Londoners! Passing Tower Bridge at 08:30 in the morning, thousands of onlookers were lining the quaysides to see the ship. We are now moored at Thames Quay in the South Dock in Canary Wharf, and will be open to visitors during the stopover.
Thank you Stockholm!
Now back in Gothenburg, we want to direct a big thank you to Stockholm – the city, our partners and guests, and everyone who came to visit us on board or from the quay. It was a week with fantastic events and great meetings, and we were overwhelmed by the warm and enthusiastic welcome from all our guests and the citizens of Stockholm.
The month-long expedition to Stockholm, the first stop on our big expedition to Asia, showed just how great a platform the ship Götheborg of Sweden is. It provides a unique meeting place for events and networking, and our mission is to use it to showcase our partners from Swedish business and innovations for a sustainable future. The ship creates great attention wherever she goes, and our partners will have it all!
Thank you to Sweden-India Business Council, Sweden-China Trade Council, Minister for Education Anna Ekström, Minister for Home Affairs Mikael Damberg, Minister for Justice and Migration Morgan Johansson, Minister for Business, Industry and Innovation Ibrahim Baylan, Minister for Defence Peter Hultqvist, Chief of Royal Swedish Navy Ewa Skoog Haslum, Greencarrier, GAC, Adesso Bioproducts, Lab 360, Polarquest, Dagens Industri and Wisory. Just to mention a few.
We would also like to thank Teaterskeppet for the fantastic food at the events during the week, and the great extra venue when needed.
