Having re-established its on-the-ground presence in Kyiv in October 2023, the Business Sweden team is pleased to launch the "Rebuilding Ukraine: Opportunities for Swedish Private Sector" webinar series for Swedish companies seeking ways to contribute their solutions and expertise to Ukraine’s recovery and renewal journey.
