Sweden and Gotland
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.
Gotland is Sweden’s largest island and is located east of the mainland, south of Stockholm. The island is the country’s smallest county in terms of population but also the county with the largest share of small businesses. The region’s most important industries are tourism, agriculture, food processing and stonemasonry. Gotland has a growing tourism industry. It is a popular destination, and some two million people travel to the island each year by air or ferry. Thanks to tourism, many companies in the retail, transport, hotel, restaurant and experience industries have also seen strong growth.
