Aida Hadzialic leads video game delegation in the US

Published

On 13–17 June, Minister for Upper Secondary School and Adult Education and Training Aida Hadzialic is traveling to the United States to participate in the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the world’s largest video game trade fair, in Los Angeles, California. The aim is to promote the Swedish gaming industry.

"One in every ten people in the world – around 700 million people – plays Swedish video games. This is why it is extremely important for me to draw attention to this type of sector of the future," says Ms Hadzialic.

For the past few years, Sweden has been the fastest growing country in the gaming industry, with a turnover of approximately EUR 6.5 million each year, spread across 170 companies. The purpose of the visit to the E3 trade fair is to help Swedish companies in their contacts with international counterparts and to discuss how the Government should work on skills supply in the sector.

Ms Hadzialic will also meet representatives of various organisations and companies that work on how to naturally incorporate new technology and ICT in education.
