Monday June 25, 2012 : SWEDISH GAMING BOARD DG ELECTED AS GREF CHAIRMAN
 
To develop a clear agenda on European gambling regulations
 
The Swedish Gaming Board's Director General Håkan Hallstedt has been elected as Chairman of the Gaming Regulators European Forum (GREF) for the next two years.
 
GREF is the forum consisting of representatives from gaming regulatory authorities and organisations across Europe who exchange ideas and information on common issues.
 
Hallstedt replaces Signe Birne, a member of Latvia’s Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection regulator.
 
“I will now establish a future work programme together with the board to streamline our work. It is important to have a clear agenda as Europe's gambling regulations differ so much and interests do not always coincide,” said Hallstedt.
