Paper production celebrates 300 years in Lessebo. The anniversary was marked by King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia who visited the paper mill on Thursday.

– When you, like us, travel a lot, you get struck by the fact that Sweden is a country of forest. The industry that works with Swedish forest raw materials also has a special place in our history and in my heart, King Carl Gustaf said in a speech.

In addition to Lessebo Paper, the King and Queen also made a visit to Hackebackes School.
