Our services

In order to facilitate trade and increase exports from developing countries to Sweden, we provide information on the official rules, technical requirements and market information applicable to Sweden.

Responding to queries

Our services include answering questions from exporters in developing countries and from Swedish importers interested in importing from these countries. We answer in a user-friendly format, tailor-made for the exporter. We answer all the questions we receive, and if a question concerns an area we do not cover, we provide the contact details to the appropriate organisation.

Arranging export seminars

Our work also includes providing information on export to Sweden through seminars and webinars, which are targeted to exporters. These seminars are arranged by Open Trade Gate Sweden in cooperation with the relevant country embassy in Sweden, a relevant organisation in the host country, such as the official export promotion organisation or the Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Swedish Embassy in the country in question.

Helping exporters who encounter obstacles

We also help exporters who encounter problems when trying to export to Sweden. Any obstacle reported to Open Trade Gate Sweden is analysed, and should we find that a requirement or procedure is unjust or too bureaucratic, we take action and try solving the problem in cooperation with the authorities concerned.

Open Trade Gate Sweden works with all developing countries as defined by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
