The scholarship program, which is usually held every year, was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with China's restrictions against COVID-19 being lifted and the country being open again, the chamber is excited to welcome Simon in mid-June 2023.


"We are thrilled to have Simon as the winner of our scholarship program this year," said Daniela L-V Cassmer, General Manager of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China. "Simon impressed us with his skills and experience, and we are confident that he will make a valuable contribution to our organization."


Simon Forsgren, who is a Swedish national, is excited to work for the chamber in Shanghai. "I am honored to have been chosen as the winner of the scholarship program, and I am looking forward to contributing to the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China's mission of promoting Swedish business interests in China," said Simon.


The scholarship program is designed to provide young Swedish talent with the opportunity to gain valuable work experience in China and to develop a better understanding of the country's business environment. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China has been running this program for several years, and it has been a great success.
