About

The Swedish Business Council (SBC) is a unique platform by and for Swedish professionals and businesses in the UAE. Since 1994 we have been working to connect, support and promote our members in order for them to grow professionally. We are a non-profit organization licensed under the Dubai Chamber of Commerce. That means we are 100 % financed by our members and the events and seminars we organise.

SBC is run by a small team of staff and the Executive Committee, which is elected at the Annual General Meeting in March.

What we do

Making connections
We provide a unique network of professionals in the UAE, consisting of our members, the vast Swedish business community, our fellow Nordic and other international business councils, as well as local organisations. We also work closely with Business Sweden and the Swedish Embassy. 

Creating platforms
We work to support our members by creating platforms to meet and extend their network. We organize business meetings, workshops and seminars on current and relevant topics. But also meet for casual sundowners and celebration of Swedish holidays and traditions.

Sharing knowledge
Collaboration through accessibility and inclusivity is key to our success. Within and beyond the SBC community we are always open to share knowledge and experiences. This guarantees our mutual development and we strive to improve through extended know-how and learnings every day.
