"It is very exciting that President Barack Obama and the United States are showing so much interest in Swedish energy policy and leading edge Swedish environmental technology, says Anna-Karin Hatt, Minister for Energy. We have a lot to learn from each other, in many ways. I hope the close cooperation we have enjoyed for several years in the energy and environmental technology area will continue and deepen.
