Sweden is a firm believer in international cooperation, the Swedish Prime Minister stated at a press briefing on May 15.

Life is not carrying on as normal in Sweden. Sweden has the same goals as all other countries: to save lives and to protect public health. In addition, the Government has provided 220 million SEK to specific international measures to handle COVID-19, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said at the press briefing.

“This crisis clearly demonstrates the need to strengthen international collaboration as well as multilateral institutions, to invest in partnerships with civil society as well as in the private sector and to formulate a plan for recovering from this pandemic and coming back stronger, more resilient ahead of next crises,” Prime Minister Stefan Löfven stated.
