Event Details


Cancellation of the Sweden-Southeast Asia Business Summit

Based on the latest developments regarding the Coronavirus, the Ministry of Health has upgraded the DORSCOM to Code Orange (explained here: https://www.moh.gov.sg/diseases-updates/being-prepared-for-a-pandemic ) and also issued a recommendation that "all non-essential large scale events should be cancelled or deferred". In consultation with the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Business Sweden and local counterparts we have concluded that cancelling the "Summit" is the correct decision at this juncture as the health and well-being of our participants is our top priority. It is our intention to seek a new date for the event when circumstances are right and we look forward to welcoming you as participants then! It is with great regret that we have to inform you that we have decided to cancel the event.

With regards,

Organising Team - Embassy of Sweden, Business Sweden and SwedCham
