SWEDISH BUSINESS IN AUSTRALIA AWARDS 2016
The SACC has over a number of years been highlighting and awarding successful Swedish business achievements in Australia. For the 2016 Swedish Business in Australia Awards we decided to introduce new awards categories with the purpose to open up the awards to a wider group of companies. We also added a new category for individuals, Young Business Executive/Young Entrepreneur.
The 2016 awards categories are as follows:
