Member Presentation – Chinese Investment and The Nordics

– Trends and Opportunities

China’s meteoric rise as an economic superpower is the story of the 21st century. China is now a major player in the world FDI market and an ever more visible source of investment into the Nordics. With Chinese investment into the Nordics yet to peak, the Nordic business community (you!) can only benefit from a deeper understanding of China’s economic and political trajectory.

Welcome to this Sweden-China Trade Council Member Presentation on april 4th in Stockholm hosted by Lindahl on Chinese investment and the Nordics. During the seminar experts in the field, Klas Eklund and Kristina Sandklef, will discuss the macro-economic and political push factors behind Chinese outbound investment and address where that investment goes in the Nordics, the consequences, and what to expect going forward.

Klas Eklund is the Senior Economist of SEB. Previously, he was under-secretary of state at the Ministry of Finance, and policy adviser to two prime ministers. He has published several books, including the best-selling Swedish economics text book, and more recently, China the born-again super power.

Kristina Sandklef, economist and China expert, is the founder of Sandklef Asia Insights and She has held senior positions at Ericsson, the asset fund management company East Capital, and has also served as a China analyst for the Swedish Armed Forces.

William Langran is a senior international arbitration lawyer, member of the New York Bar, and China scholar. He is a fluent Mandarin speaker, legal adviser to Chinese clients, and author of postgraduate scholarship (Univ. Cambridge) on Chinese legal reform.

Lindahl is one of Sweden’s largest business law firms and a member of the Sweden-China Trade Council. The firm has a dedicated China desk and provides legal advice to Chinese companies active in Sweden, as well as Swedish companies active in China. This includes, for example, Chinese businesses seeking to establish or invest in Sweden or enter into partnership with Swedish businesses and representing Chinese businesses in complex international litigation and international arbitration disputes.
