On Wednesday 28 June 2017, Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden, met with Jack Ma, Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group to explore collaborations between e-commerce giant Alibaba and Swedish businesses.
During his state visit to China, the Swedish Prime Minister was joined by a delegation of 25 Swedish companies which he presented to Alibaba. Among the delegation were Babybjörn, H&M, Zound Industries, Fjällräven, Scania, Volvo and Rise.
“I thought it might be interesting for him to meet a number of companies from the EU’s most innovative country and brought me 25 Swedish companies,” said Löfven.
Alibaba stands alone for 50 percent of the world’s e-commerce. Acess to the platform will create big opprtunities for Swedish companies and brands.
