An important task for the Embassy is to promote Swedish economic interests.
The Embassy promotes Swedish industry, trade and investments, facilitates the establishment of Swedish companies in India by providing support and advice, and assists with useful contacts for companies. The Embassy also assists Swedish companies in matters regarding trade barriers.
The Embassy works closely with Business Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce India (SCCI) and the Consulate General in Mumbai in the promotion of Swedish economic interests. Business Sweden, the Trade and Invest Council, facilitates for Swedish companies to reach export markets with their products by providing advisory services and skills development and by organizing events and targeted campaigns. Moreover it facilitates Indian investments to Sweden. The SCCI is an independent, non-profit organization with the mission to promote economic, social and cultural relations between Sweden and India through, inter alia, organizing seminars and networking events.
Each year the Embassy in collaboration with the SCCI conducts a survey among Swedish companies in India in order to collect information about trends, opportunities and challenges. The results of the survey are presented in the yearly publication Business Climate Survey (BCS) by the SCCI. The latest BCS is attached here. Business Climate Survey 201718.pdf
