The traditional Chinese New Year celebration was held in Stockholm on the 6th of February which gathered over 200 eager participants.
The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London (HKETO) gave the attendees an update of the latest events from Hong Kong, while the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) presented business opportunities from the region.
A panel discussion was held between MTR, SAS and Karolinska Institute (Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine) on the topic of business exchange and investment between Sweden and Hong Kong.
All panel participants were pleased with their respective investments and MTR saw more opportunities in Sweden regarding infrastructure and development of the subway.
SAS informed that many of their passengers used Hong Kong as a hub to transfer onwards in Asia and that there was potential in expanding the route to more frequent departures from Stockholm.
The Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine is Karolinska Institute’s first overseas branch and the first example of a Swedish public university establishing a unit outside of its national borders. The centre is celebrating its first year of operations and has received a lot of attention and visitors from all around the world. The administrative director for the centre Mrs Marie Tell gave the advice that results in science takes time and that patience is needed.
