Swedish Chamber of Commerce

Group  From 1906 

Categories: Commerce, Politics & Administration

Countries: Sweden

The subject of a London Chamber was first discussed in early 1906, when a number of meetings regarding the arrangement of a Swedish exhibition, led to the establishment of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in London. The Certificate of Incorporation was granted by the Board of Trade and offices were hired at 136, Fenchurch Street. At the end of 1907 no less than 189 members had been elected.

In 2022, from our Picture source: the Swedish Chamber of Commerce is an independent, non-profit Swedish-British business organisation. The Chamber has around 400 member businesses, representing not only Swedish companies but also British and European companies interested in strengthening their existing ties with Sweden and the UK or expanding to new markets. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK is the oldest and largest foreign Swedish Chamber in the world, and also one of the largest foreign Chambers in the UK.

The organisation gives its address as Sweden House, 5 Upper Montagu Street W1 but we don't know when it moved away from its Trinity Square building. However it was probably after 1972.  An observant commentator on A London Inheritance, pointed out that a 1972 photo on the SCC history page shows the future King Carl XVI Gustaf, as a Chamber trainee, standing on the roof of the Trinity Square building.
