Regional growth gap widens

According to a newly released report from Nutek, the Swedish Business Development Agency, metropolitan areas have the best potential for strong growth while Norrland’s inland region has the worst.

The Agency warns that there is a growing divide between the regions of Sweden, that new enterprise is too low and that small companies are experiencing problems.
