24 new 'Global Swedes'

On Monday 7 May a diploma ceremony was held for 24 foreign students studying at higher education institutions in Sweden. They have all distinguished themselves in areas related to innovation and entrepreneurship. Minister for Trade Ewa Björling presented diplomas and the students received the Global Swede award. It is hoped that after completing their degrees, they can become excellent ambassadors and promote a positive image of Sweden.
