Permanent Representation of Sweden to the European UnionSvenska
An extended arm of government
Sweden's Permanent Representation to the European Union in Brussels is an extended arm of the Swedish Government. Our main task is to ensure that Swedish interests and policies are pursued as effectively as possible in the EU.
The Permanent Representation has some 125 employees and is Sweden's largest mission abroad. Headed by Dag Hartelius, Sweden's Ambassador to the EU, we function as a miniature version of the Government Offices in Stockholm, representing all the home ministries.
An important task of the Permanent Representation is to supply analyses and assessment to the Swedish Government Offices, which are responsible for shaping EU policies. The Representation also acts as the Swedish Governments day-to-day communication link with the EU institutions.
