In 2020 and 2021, we celebrate 100 years of Swiss official presence in Sweden.
We commemorate the centennial with a series of events in the political, economic, cultural and scientific sphere in collaboration with our Swedish and Swiss partners.

There are both historic and pandemic reasons for these celebrations extended over two years. In 1915, Sweden decided to send a diplomatic representative to Switzerland, and formal diplomatic relations between our two countries were established that same year. After the First World War, in 1920, the Swiss government decided to do the same and the first Swiss envoy arrived in Stockholm in early 1921.

Sweden and Switzerland have much in common, share many values and are very often like-minded. We are innovative and entrepreneurial friendly countries and we pursue similar objectives, whether in the promotion of peace, in our commitment to democracy, the rule of law and human rights, in the defense of free trade or in the protection of the environment and the fight against climate change.

We are grateful to our centennial sponsors:
