On 23 May 2023, the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the European Union has published a press release that Sweden will host a meeting of the EU-US Trade and Technology Council (TTC) at Luleå House of Culture.
“Sweden is proud to welcome the European Union and the United States to Luleå for the fourth Trade and Technology Council meeting. The TTC is one of the most important forums for negotiations in this area, where we are working to strengthen cooperation between the EU and the US. The TTC has also played a key role in creating a united front against Russia in the wake of its invasion of Ukraine, especially by establishing a common transatlantic export controls strategy,” says Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Tobias Billström.
The formal TTC meeting will take place on the morning of Wednesday 31 May and end with a press conference at 15.30. In addition to the formal meeting, a number of side events will be held around Luleå, focusing on the green and digital transitions. The last day to apply for media accreditation is today, Tuesday 23 May.
