Stockholm Hosts European Development Days
Representatives of more than 130 countries and numerous organizations are currently discussing global issues at the European Development Days in Stockholm. As host of the three-day event the Minister for International Development Coordination, Gunilla Carlsson, expressed hopes for lively debates on the topics of democracy, economy, and climate.
She said that the three-day congress at Stockholm’s International Fairground Complex opened vast opportunities for exchanging views among experts on a global scale, even though no political decisions would be made. The congress with its roughly 6,000 participants is the largest event hosted by Sweden during the country’s six-month presidency of the European Union.
