EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has visited Sweden and talked about forests.

The visit took place at Östhamra farm in Knivsta, south of Uppsala. There, the EU’s most powerful woman walked around with Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson (M) and Minister for Energy and Business Ebba Busch (KD).

Ursula von der Leyen received a guided tour of the grounds. She is out seeking support among the EU’s 27 countries for a second term as President of the European Commission.

Ulf Kristersson says he supports von der Leyen and wants her to stay. 

“I support her completely and fully.”

von der Leyen seems to have been impressed by the visit and what the landowner presented.

“We have a lot of forest in the EU, but very different forests. The forest here in the north is completely different from what is found in the Mediterranean. Therefore, specific expertise is needed for these forests.”
