"HRH Prince Daniel opened the 2021 Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day, this year on screen, with a speech that outlined Sweden’s role as an industrial nation and how Swedish innovative companies are contributing to the world’s #sustainability"
Daniel inaugurated the 2021 Sweden Sustaintech Venture Day.
He said at his speech (in english) among other things:
"Who would have thought, one year ago, that this new way of life; virtual business meetings and conferences, digital classes in high schools, Zoom coffee with older relatives;
Who would have thought that just one year later, this would be “the new normal”?
It has been a tough year for many, a nightmare for some.
On top of the devastating loss of lives, the pandemic has led to deep economic recessions, and an exceptional increase in global poverty.
Last year the global economy shrunk by 4,4%, which the IMF describes as the worst decline since the Great Depression of the 1930s."
Daniel then listened to a number of lectures on investment trends in sustainable technical solutions and green energy.
