Around 60 Swedes living in the Algarve met with the Swedish government-representative Karin Palmquist on Saturday (September 20) for lunch at the Aquarelle restaurant in Almancil.

She meets with Swedish expats and then takes their suggestions directly back to the government. Among her achievements so far is a lower tax rate for pensioners who still pay taxes in Sweden.
