Swedcham – Space for Good Opportunities

For decades, Brazil has been a major trade partner for Sweden. Since the beginning of the 1900s, Swedish industry has established more than 200 companies in Brazil and this long-term commitment has evolved into a “little Sweden” in the city with the largest economy in Latin America: São Paulo, the financial heart and soul of Brazil, also considered the second largest Swedish industrial hub after Gothenburg.

The Swedish-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce - Swedcham, founded in 1953, is funded exclusively by member contributions and resources originating from a series of events organized and held by the Chamber.

Based at Rua Oscar Freire in São Paulo’s Jardins district, the Chamber offers its members and Swedish industry valuable support through its sphere of influence, contacts and knowledge of socio-economic and political relations between Brazil and Sweden.

Swedcham promotes and develops bilateral links between Brazil and Sweden. Members enjoy a modern business center, where they can meet a unique business network and enjoy events developed to improve and support the Brazilian and Swedish business relations.
