The Swedish-Belgian Association (SBA) was founded in 1934 in Stockholm. It has thus been active now for almost 90 years.
The By-laws of the SBA define its objectives to “further and develop the bonds of sympathy, which join Belgium and Sweden as well as the commercial and economic relations between the two countries. It wants, above all, to promote in Sweden the knowledge of the industrial and economic conditions of Belgium as well as its scientific, artistic and literary trends”.
The purposes of the Association are to support friendly, cultural and economic relations between Belgium and Sweden.
The SBA is non-political. In addition, it provides a focus and opportunity for meeting Belgians and Swedes with a Belgian experience or an interest in Belgium. It proposes regular meetings, ranging from lunch seminars to informal gatherings. Read more about our events.
SBA – in co-operation with the Belgian Embassy – should be the obvious focal point in Sweden for “everything Belgian” or “Belgian-Swedish”.
- Belgium in Sweden: represent Belgian culture, traditions and holidays in sweden and bring Belgian events in Sweden to the attention of members and others
- Belgium and Sweden: be a professional and social meeting place for interaction between Belgians and Swedes
- Sweden for Belgians: offer information about Swedish society and culture for Belgians in Sweden
- Belgium for Swedes: offer information about Belgian society and culture for Swedes moving to Belgium (in cooperation with the Swedish clubs in Belgium)
The official language of the Association is English.
