Most new jobs in southern Sweden
According to Swedish TV new program “Rapport”, most new jobs in Sweden can be found in the south. And that’s mostly thanks to the Öresund bridge. Since the building of the bridge ten years ago, some 30 companies have moved their main offices to Malmö. The bridge creates jobs on the Swedish as well as the Danish side, and today some 20,000 people commute daily in either direction. “The growth has been good, especially since 2005,” says Christian Lindell, analyst at Näringsliv Skåne. The Stockholm-Mälaren region has also had a strong growth job-wise during the last decade, although it doesn’t look as bright for western Sweden, where the number of employees are at the same level as it was during the 1980’s.
