Delegation meeting on international trade in Helsinki

Delegates from around the world met in the end of  May for a delegation meeting with IUCAB, Internationally United Commercial Agents & Brokers. Sweden is represented by Helena Waker, CEO, Jan Björnum, chairman of the board, and lawyer Anna-Karin Abdon, Trade Partners Sweden.

The work and network of lawyers in the 22 member countries is a very important advantage within IUCAB. The delegation meeting’s focus was on a new strategy and the future. The United States is one of the member states and is now taking a step forward by increasing its commitment and joining several working groups and taking on an advisory role. An update from the different markets shows that it looks brighter in the euro area, although it is a slight increase. Many countries have passed a recession and are now seeing stable growth.

During the delegation meeting, the winner of the award Agent of the Year 2017, The George Hayward Award, was announced. We are very proud and happy that Swedish agency Lindeblad & Wendin AB won! Read more about them here!
