Week 45 was very special to us since Northern Europe’s leading subcontractor fair was taking place in Jönköping. Since we plan to bring manufacturing and IT Lithuanian business mission to this region next fall, we simply could not miss the opportunity to visit!

It was an extraordinary visit on so many levels. Sweden´s different approach to Covid restrictions was nothing in comparison to the people our very own Laura Burauskienė has met. Lithuania´s Honorary Consul Gunnar LansHandelskammaren i Jönköpings Län Annika CederfeldtScience Park Jönköpings län Gustav ÖsterströmPelly Group‘s Sara BerglundJönköping International Business School‘s Jerker MoodyssonJönköpings kommun Patrik Holst – each of these people are experts in their field, but their knowledge and sincere interest in cooperation are topped with unmatched warmth and openness.

It was also great fun to participate in the LINPRA – Engineering and Technology Industries Association of Lithuania event. Not only our dear members HennordicColibrisODM and Investment Partner were there, Invest Lithuania: ManufacturingEmbassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Sweden and active Lithuanian companies were doing their best in strengthening ties with Sweden and Jönköping region.

President of Association of Free Economic Zones of Lithuania, Giedrius Valuckas was also active in spreading the word about the FEZ concept and its tremendous incentives, just like Karolis Pilipauskas and Rokas Gimžauskas. Indeed, everyone at the fair was open for a chat, especially MasTec‘s Sakib MasicXANO Industri AB‘s Matz SvenssonLINAK‘s Henric EnellDibo Produktionspartner Hans-Erik SvedinSVEGEA OF SWEDEN ABSMEMO ABNiklas Lindberg Linto-Lindefors HookNTG Air & Ocean and people from DS Smith.

Got plenty of needed and well-appreciated information for our own business mission to Jönköping which is planned to happen next fall!
