A message from your departing Chief

Dear friends and colleagues,

As many of you already know, I have recently been appointed Sweden's Ambassador to India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives, resident in New Delhi. I take up my new duties already this Friday, September 1. Pending the arrival of my successor in October, Ms. Anna Block Mazoyer will be Acting Chief of Protocol starting this Friday.

It's been a great honour to serve you as your Chief during the last two years and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you in the variety of ways typical of a Protocol Department: from routine approvals of permits to the most extensive state visits. The diplomatic corps in Stockholm is large, very active and very professional - and I will always treasure the friendships made and continue to profit from the experiences gathered over these two years.

With my very best wishes for the continued success of your missions,

yours truly,

Klas Molin
