Talk: Does Sweden prosper despite or because of its social welfare structure
Date: 25 February 2009 

The School's Swedish Programme will host a talk by the Consul-General of Sweden in Hong Kong, Mr. Lars Danielsson, on Wednesday, February 25, 2009.

During his presentation, entitled 'Does Sweden prosper despite or because of its social welfare structure', Mr. Danielsson will discuss what is considered by many to be the most comprehensive social welfare system in the world. He will also comment on the current trade relations between China and Sweden.

Mr. Danielsson's talk is organized as part of the University's Broadening Course YLAN0006: Living in the Land of the Midnight Sun - Towards an Understanding of Contemporary Scandinavia. This course aims to introduce students to the region of Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland) through the main themes of its history and culture.

The talk will be held from 1 pm to 3 pm in Room K230, Knowles Building.
