The Swedish election in September, a tense security policy situation due to the war in Ukraine and the Swedish NATO membership application are all matters that will significantly mark this year’s Almedalen Week. Chief of Communications and Public Affairs, Brigadier General Mats Ström, thinks that it is important that the Swedish Armed Forces participates during Almedalen Week. All the major players take part and this is a good opportunity to network and discuss matters of common interest.
”In times of unrest and with an ongoing war in Europe, a new security order and a future NATO membership, meeting and discussing current issues is paramount. Almedalen Week is an excellent platform for doing so”, says Mats Ström.
