- Sweden and Australia are two of the world's leading mining nations. Sweden has technology, innovation and a sustainable systems approach that provide advantages when the mining industry develops and takes on greater importance for more and more countries. We hope that our event will lead to new collaborations and business opportunities, says Business Sweden's CEO Jan Larsson, who is participating on site.

At the one-day conference, representatives from the Australian mining industry are invited to learn more about what is happening in Sweden regarding sustainable mining. Sweden is at the global top when it comes to sustainable mining, including electrification, automation, digitisation and connected mining. In Sweden, projects such as Sustainable Underground Mining, ReeMap and HYBRIT have attracted great international interest.

The event, which takes place on Wednesday 15 February, has received great support from the local Swedish business community, with both large and small companies represented.

Given the green transition in northern Sweden, possible loosening of the regulation of mining and new deposits, there are many topics that are relevant to discuss with stakeholders from the Australian mining industry.

The Crown Princess Couple and the Minister for International Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Johan Forssell, participate in the summit.

- It is encouraging that there is so much interest in Business Sweden's conference focusing on the mining industry. Australia's growing importance in the green transition on a global level can be explained, among other things, by their large metal and mineral resources, so the cooperation between Sweden and Australia is valuable and has great potential to develop even more, says Martin Ekberg, Trade Commissioner for Australia
