Host Country Inquiry Presented

Sweden’s government has been presented a report on Sweden as host country for international organisations.

The Host Country Inquiry was appointed to find solutions to a number of practical problems that had arisen for intergovernmental organisations in Sweden, and also to outline plans for a more active Swedish host country policy.

The objective is for Sweden to become better at attracting international activities.

According to the Inquiry chair, ”International cooperation is a rapidly expanding field. Sweden should be in a good position to attract more international organisations.”

The report suggests that a special coordinator should be appointed at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs to deal with international organisation issues that recur frequently.
