The Expo

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs deals with matters concerning Sweden’s participation in world expos. It also has commitments in the International Exhibitions Bureau (BIE), where Staffan Björck chairs the Information and Communication Committee with responsibilities including raising interest in world expos. Since 2004, when the idea of a virtual world expo was conceived in Sweden, the project has officially been undertaken under the aegis of the BIE, with the intention that it will also be run from Sweden. We occupy a strong position in IT and telecoms, which naturally also needs to be maintained and developed further, and Sweden also enjoys considerable credibility at international level in terms of its ability to handle complex projects focusing on innovation. A development centre for The Expo is set to be established in Stockholm to serve the BIE and all the nations that will take part in the virtual world expo.
