Earlier in the summer of 2016 the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong posted a job opportunity that the chamber was looking for a new General Manager.
However, ScandAsia can now disclose that this attractive position has been cancelled since General Manager Eva Karlberg will remain at this job posting.
“Instead of the planned move back to Sweden at the end of this year, my husband and I decided to stay on in Hong Kong. The SwedCham Board kindly asked me to remain as GM of the chamber, which I of course happily accepted. This is the best position I can ever wish for: to meet new companies and people and learn a lot about all the exciting entrepreneurs and start-ups coming in to Hong Kong right now,” says Eva Karlberg.
The reason for the tentative move to Sweden was that Eva’s husband had been offered a new exciting job position.
“We have lived in Hong Kong since 1993, and I have been on the posting at chamber of commerce since 1998. Before that I worked for five years at the Medical Faculty lf the University of Hong Kong.”
