  3. White House lays out Obama’s itinerary for first trip to Sweden

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/08/30/white-house-lays-out-obamas-itinerary-for-first-trip-to-sweden/

    President Obama will pay respects to Holocaust humanitarian Raoul Wallenberg and visit the Royal Institute of Technology during his first trip to Sweden next week, White House officials said.

    Obama will stop in Stockholm on Wednesday before traveling to the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Thursday and Friday.

    The president is set to hold a bilateral meeting with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt to discuss trade and international security. Obama also will visit the Great Synagogue in Stockholm to honor the late Wallenberg, a Swede credited with helping save tens of thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary.

    Obama will tour the technology institute, which an administration official described as “on the cutting edge of research.” In the evening, the president is scheduled to join Reinfeldt at a formal dinner that could include other Nordic leaders. Reinfeldt has invited the heads of state of Finland, Denmark, Iceland and Norway, White House officials said.

    At the G-20 summit, Obama will join the leaders of the world’s top 20 economies in several working sessions devoted to job growth, economic development, finance and trade. He will also have several bilateral meetings, but officials did not disclose with which countries.
