This past weekend, ambassador Olof Ehrenkrona turned 70 years old. Olof Ehrenkrona has played a unique role in Swedish and European politics over the last five decades. Serving as chief of staff to Moderate Party leaders Gösta Bohman and Ulf Adelsohn in the 1980’s, he became head of policy planning to prime minister Carl Bildt 1991-1994. He has since then been appointed ambassador, served as consul general in Åland and has contributed as editorial writer at the Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet and written several books.
As a long time partner and friend of the Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation, the foundation join with friends around the world in congratulating Olof Ehrenkrona on his 70th birthday.
