The Swedish Triangle
“In Austria, the Swedish Embassy represents Sweden in all formal and official matters. The Swedish Trade Council, a commercial consultancy operation with official status, represents the interests of Swedish industry in Austria, offering them commercial advice on their respective activities. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Austria, a non-profit organization, represents the interests of Sweden related professionals and their respective companies, offering them a relevant network of peers and interests. The three parties actively agree to the above and coordinate accordingly."
