How will the Swedish presidency handle forests?

The Wood Be Better network invites you to a reception ahead of the Swedish presidency of the Council of the EU. (no digital broadcast)

In January 2023, Sweden takes over the rotating presidency of the Council in a crucial time for Europe. 

What can we expect from the Swedish government? Will Sweden be able to deliver on the Green Deal and conclude the negotiations on key legislative files? How will it affect the forest-based sector?

Join us for a networking reception with Members of the European Parliament, representative of the Swedish government (to be confirmed) and representatives of the forest-based sector.


From 17:30 until 20:00: Registration and cocktail reception

18:15-18:40: Panel discussion with representative from the Swedish government (to be confirmed) and Members of the European Parliament and Wood Be Better hosts Erik Bergkvist (S&D), Jessica Polfjärd (EPP), Emma Wiesner (Renew Europe) and Pär Holmgren (Greens)

Most welcome

Anna Holmberg, Swedish Forest Industries
