The Embassy/Defense Attach Luncheon Series Featuring Sweden's MG Bengt Svensson

NDIA's International Division presents a luncheon with MG Bengt Svensson, Defense Attaché, Embassy of Sweden and key staff from the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC.

Major General Bengt Svensson, will present an overview of the development of Sweden’s security situation and its Armed Forces. 


He will also address Sweden’s perception of its regional situation and how the regional threats have and are developing. 


This discussion is a timely one. In 2019, Sweden will be making significant decisions about its defense budget. MG Svensson will provide remarks focusing on Swedish views of changing security dynamics in Europe, Sweden’s ongoing efforts to enhance its operation capabilities, and opportunities to develop stronger bilateral relations with the United States. 

One aspect of enhancing the operational capabilities is the discussion concerning future capabilities and procurement plans. What are the priorities? How does a small country balance the need for immediate increased capabilities and investments in the future?
