In his presentation, he highlighted a number of investments that are needed to not only knit parts of the region closer together but also to increase the competence level in the region’s companies.


The West Sweden Chamber of Commerce is a private, politically-neutral organisation working to strengthen the region’s business community. The Chamber works to create growth and develop the future of West Sweden by helping companies do more and better business and by influencing political decisions. Its efforts have regional focus as economic growth is primarily affected by regional conditions before municipal and national ones.


In addition to Johan Trouvé’s presentation, there was also networking with fellow Executive MBA alumni and current participants.




The next Executive MBA Alumni event will take place in the Spring 2016. Stay tuned for more information.
