In a time when we have many common challenges, and when one Member State even decides to leave the EU, we want to see more cross-border cooperation. For more and better jobs, for an ambitious climate policy, and for safety and security for everyone who lives here.”

    On 29 March 2021 the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter published an opinion piece by Minister for EU Affairs Hans Dahlgren. In the article Hans Dahlgren writes about the ongoing discussion within the EU regarding strategic autonomy – which in simple terms is about attempting to reduce Europe’s dependence on the rest of the world.

    From the Swedish Government’s point of view, there are five primary areas in which initiatives can be taken to build a stronger EU that remains open to the rest of the world: the green transition, digital development, enhanced crisis preparedness, fair competition, and a stronger European voice regarding foreign and security policy. Hans Dahlgren writes that the Swedish Government will work actively to strengthen EU cooperation without jeopardising the single market’s fundamental principles of openness, innovation and free trade.
