China's Prime Minister visits Gothenburg

Linda Genborg 2012-04-13

China’s Prime Minister Wen Jiabao is visiting Gothenburg at the end of the month. He is taking part in an international conference on sustainable development in Stockholm, but will also come to Gothenburg on April 23.

“There will be an event at the Swedish Ship Götheborg, where among others, representatives from companies in Gothenburg will take part,” says Anton César at stadsledningskontoret in Gothenburg, to Göteborgs-Posten (GP).

During his Stockholm visit, Wen Jiabao will have an audience with King Carl Gustaf and meet the Speaker of Parliament Per Westerberg. On April 25 he will take part in the conference.

“He made clear that he wanted to come. It means a lot for the status of the conference that China is participating on such a high level. It’s a very important standpoint,” says Lena Ek (the Centre Party), Minister for the Environment, to GP.

In 2007, China’s President Hu Jintao visited Sweden and Gothenburg.
