It is with great sadness that we have received news that our former CBSS Committee of Senior Officials member has passed away.
Ambassador Hans Olsson served as our Swedish Ministry representative for a number of years and coordinated our presidency during 2017-2018 for Sweden.
Amb. Olsson was a respected member of our CBSS family. Through his pragmatism and his perspective, the CBSS as an organisation took its legacy and future seriously, he brought wisdom, humour and intelligent diplomacy to the table. His long tenure at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs has been devoted to the prosperity of this region and he knew all of our Member States well.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues.
