Swedish-Chinese relations in the heart of Almedalen 2019

The Swedish-Chinese relations go back a long time. Since the Swedish East Indiaman Götheborg left the Gothenburg harbor in 1739 for the maiden voyage to China the relations between Sweden and China has since been filled with partnerships and strategic alliances. Next year - 2020 - Sweden and China celebrate 70 year anniversary of diplomatic relations. This means that Sweden has a very special relation to China and therefore we are hosting the grand event - China Day - in the midst the political and commercial epicenter of Almedalen 2019. 

Welcome to Strandvägen 4.2 outside the Wisby Strand congress center. On the opposite side of the famous "Kallis" cold bath and bar.
