Press release from Ministry for Foreign Affairs

Ann Linde new Minister for EU Affairs and Trade at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs

Published

In connection with the government reshuffle on 25 May 2016, Ann Linde took up her new office as Minister for EU Affairs and Trade at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Ms Linde has had an extensive career, both internationally and at the Government Offices. Most recently she served as State Secretary to Minister for Home Affairs Anders Ygeman at the Ministry of Justice.

"I was delighted and honoured by the appointment as Minister for EU Affairs and Trade, with responsibility for two areas I have been very committed to for a long time," says Ms Linde. The EU is facing major challenges considering the British referendum and the ongoing refugee crisis, and it is important that Sweden takes part in the debate on the future of the EU, both in Europe and at home.

"Increased trade in Europe and in other important markets is highly prioritised by the Government in its efforts to reduce unemployment and increase growth. I am looking forward to working with Team Sweden to make this a reality using the export strategy that was recently adopted," says Ms Linde.

Oscar Stenström will assume the post of State Secretary to the Minister for EU Affairs and Trade. Mr Stenström most recently served at the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, where he was State Secretary to Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Michael Damberg.
