The ASEAN Committee Meeting in Stockholm.

          On 2 February 2024, Mrs. Arunrung Phothong Humphreys, who is the Chair of the ASEAN Committee in Stockholm, organised a luncheon at the Thai Residence in Stockholm to honour Mr. Daniel Wolvén on his assumption of duty as the Head of the Department of Asia, Pacific and Latin America. The event was attended by ambassadors and representatives from the Embassies of Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

          During the lunch, the ambassadors of ASEAN countries had an extensive discussion with Mr. Wolvén on ways to strengthen relations between ASEAN and Sweden, as well as ASEAN and the EU, and to enhance bilateral cooperation between Sweden and various ASEAN countries. The ASEAN Committee in Stockholm was the first to meet, as a regional group, and discuss with Mr. Daniel after he assumed his duties.
