Swedish exports are one of the Swedish Government’s focus areas and are an important part of getting more people in work and safeguarding Swedish welfare. Team Sweden stands ready to help businesses. It is an umbrella made up of public authorities, government agencies and companies that all work to promote Swedish exports abroad.
In Japan Team Sweden consists of the Embassy, Business Sweden, the Growth Analysis Office and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCJ).
Japan is one of Sweden’s most important trading partners outside EU, and the second largest market in Asia after China. Many Swedish companies have been active on the Japanese market for a long time while others have just arrived.
Team Sweden will help make entry into the export market clear and simple for interested Swedish companies. It’s a way for the Government to make use of coordinated and effective export support to help businesses that want to set up operations abroad. This export support includes advisory services, financing, marketing and the long-term promotion of Sweden. Another task for Team Sweden is to regularly evaluate public promotion activities so that the most effective methods are always chosen.
