SWEDISH companies are willing to invest, share their knowledge and expertise but they need local support.

This was expressed by the Sweden Ambassador to Eswatini Marie Anderson de Frutos, who said the support should be both from the embassy and Emaswati.


She was speaking at the occasion of welcoming the newly-appointed  Anita Jones who has been in the country for over 25 years, and  is the owner and director of AM Group of Companies at Ngwenya yesterday.

In the same event, outgoing Swedish Consular Per Noddeboe was bid farewell. He has served the country in the same position since 2008. He was awarded with the honour of Knight of the Polar Star.“We are here today to celebrate the end of Per Nöddeboe’s time as Honorary Consul. Per has been a great representative for Sweden during these years.


“ I would like to highlight his efforts in regards to Sweden’s candidacy to the UN Security Council as well as his support on political dialogue with the government focused on Article 8 of the Cotonou Agreement. Thank you Per. I would also like to direct a warm welcome to Per’s successor Anita Jones,” she said.
