Royal Visit to Olofström

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia began their day with a visit to Olofström in Blekinge which celebrates its 50th anniversary as a municipality.

They visited the Volvo Car factory, which employs around 2,500 people who produce body components that are sent on to other factories at Torslanda as well as Belgium, China and the United States.

The Royal Couple also met with employees and their children, before participating in more celebrations in Holje park.

King Carl Gustaf continued the tradition of handing over banners to local associations and organisations, before giving a speech focusing on Sweden’s rich history and a promising future.
