“Well, I’ve visited with Chalmers and Gothenburg University students.
We’ve talked about innovation and entrepreneurship which is very important to us in developing our relationship and it’s something that both Sweden and the United States are very strong in.

And I also met with some government officials and we talked about opportunities that we can focus on to strengthen the relationship between Gothenburg and the United States.”
