Martin Hagström


Mr. Martin Hagström, the Ambassador of Sweden to Ukraine, arrived in Kyiv in September 2016. A career diplomat, Mr Hagström served as Ambassador for the Eastern Partnership at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden in Stockholm 2013-2016. Before that, he served as Head of Division for Eastern Europe at the Ministry 2010-2013. His previous diplomatic postings include the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the European Union and the Consulate General of Sweden in Saint Petersburg. Before joining the diplomatic service, Mr Hagström worked as a journalist.

We welcome you to join us this week for an evening of Professional Business Networking at the Hyatt Regency Hotel as Fryday W welcomes H.E. Martin Hagström, Sweden’s Ambassador to Ukraine.

As a Swedish organisation, Fryday has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Embassy of Sweden in Kyiv, holding events with previous Ambassadors in 2012 and 2014. Now with the arrival of a new Swedish Ambassador in Kyiv Fryday W will once again join forces with the diplomatic mission. Ambassador Hagström will make a short TED-style speech focused on the development of trade between Sweden and Ukraine. The Ambassador will be happy to take questions from the audience. The networking event will also feature a special lottery draw, with a selection of exciting prizes.

What will Ambassador talk about at Fryday W?

* Embassy’s main activities in Sweden-Ukraine relations, trade promotion and reform support.
* Swedish business in Ukraine and the main challenges facing companies.
* The development of bilateral trade, and why promotion of imports to Sweden is also important?
