ABOUT US

[NOT BY US]

What’s more important to you? What we say about us, or what our members say about us? Sure, we can tell you we’ve been providing crucial support to Swedish and American companies as well as individuals for over one hundred years; or highlight the fact that we’re the largest, most active organization of its kind in the United States. and undisputedly the largest Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the world. But we guess what you’re really looking for are some genuine reasons why you should join us and start your process of success.
