    On Thursday 25 August, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven will receive Vice President of the United States Joe Biden. Sweden and the United States enjoy close and good relations. Vice President Biden’s visit is an expression of this, with a view to continuing to deepen the already broad cooperation with the US. This cooperation was manifested earlier this year in the US-Nordic Leaders’ Summit held in Washington in May.

The Government has drawn up a new national counter-terrorism strategy that will form the basis of Sweden’s long-term work in this area, both nationally and internationally. The aim is to create a clear structure for the work needed to combat terrorist crime. The strategy emphasises the importance of cooperation and clear follow-up of the work done.

A Feminist Government

Sweden has the first feminist government in the world. There is a focus on gender equality, both in national and international work. Women and men must have equal power to shape society and their own lives. Ultimately it is a question of human rights, democracy and justice. Gender equality is also a part of the solution to the challenges facing society. Gender equality is a matter of course in a modern welfare society – for social justice and economic development.
