Sweden and central Sweden region
Sweden is one of the world’s most competitive and productive economies, a pioneer in innovation that can boast of its sophisticated consumers and an open attitude to international companies and ownership. Sweden is the home market for a large number of world-leading companies in different sectors and, with its strong belief in an uncomplicated corporate environment, provides attractive opportunities for investments and companies.
Central Sweden and Jämtland-Härjedalen are known for their informal corporate climate and quick decision-making. Engaged networks and authorities, low employment costs and a low employee turnover contribute to the region’s profitability. Mid Sweden University, one of Sweden’s leading universities, is also located in the region. The university has specialised programmes in trade and industry, tourism, outdoor recreation and vehicle technology, and also offers related skills and opportunities for collaboration.
Tourism is the strongest industry in the region. A large range of experiences in culture and outdoor recreation makes the area a popular destination both in the summer and winter. The region is perhaps best known for Åre and Vemdalen, two of Sweden’s largest and most popular ski resorts.
