Midsummer get-together for former and current SCCL Board

SCCL has taken the opportunity to arrange the first 'live' meeting of former and current Board and Honorary Board members and thank former Board for their engagement and guidance throughout the past two years. We are also proud and happy to have an  ambitious new Board, which started their journey with us just before the quarantine and kept the lead during this unprecedented period. Our Honorary Members inspire us all to give our best for the Chamber and to move forward with fulfilling its mission.

Summer Fika at the Embassy of Sweden

On June 22nd H.E. Ambassador of Sweden Maria Christina Lundqvist invited the new SCCL Board and office for a summer ‘fika‘ at the courtyard of the Embassy of Sweden in Vilnius. In her welcoming word, the Ambassador expressed appreciation to SCCL for a great partnership  and praised the Chamber for being very creative during the quarantine and for taking the challenge and arranging an important and timely series of webinars. „It has taken a virus for SCCL for finding its true path“, she joked.

Green growth is the new "normal"

Coronavirus has also its green side  – the new „normal“ are climate-neutral, circular and digital solutions. A number of climate-responsible companies have proven that scaling up of green projects leads to increased profitability and competitiveness. However, the EU goal of becoming the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050 cannot be reached without close cooperation between civil society, government and businesses. Lithuania and Sweden could be the leading countries by working together and serving as inspiration for others to follow. These and other insights have been shared by H.E. Ambassador of Sweden Maria Christina Lundqvist, Deniz Butros/Hagainitiativet (PPT), Arnoldas Pranckevičius/European Commission Representation in Lithuania, Nicholas Rosenberg Kjaer/Volvo Trucks (PPT) and Audrius Tulaba/INHUS (PPT) at the webinar on green recovery, organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden in Vilnius and moderated by Dovile Grigiene/Swedbank Lietuvoje.

Creating a customer-centric culture

To become truly customer-focused requires more than running a customer-oriented project – it's about creating the right type of organization culture. Prioritizing customer work not only drives customer satisfaction and loyalty, but also leads to profitability. These insights have been shared by SCCL Member Briox during the closing-of-the-season webinar, organized in cooperation partners, Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Latvia. PPT presentations by Briox team can be found here and by the CEO of Briox Johan Nordqvist here.

Some signs of recovery in the Swedish economy

According to the Ministry of Finance's most recent economic forecast, there have been some signs of recovery in the Swedish economy, but the situation is still very serious. GDP is expected to fall by 6% and the unemployment forecast is 9,3% this year. However, the system of short-term layoffs is expected to counter what would otherwise have been a larger drop in unemployment. “Compared with the most recent forecast in our Spring Fiscal Policy Bill, we have revised the growth forecast for Sweden downwards, but less than feared,” says Minister for Finance Magdalena Andersson.
