Stockholm Uninteresting As Host to EU Institutions

"Stockholm fails in bid to take EU agency post-Brexit"

This nicely displays how out of touch Sweden is with the rest of the world.

Take a look:

For a supposed IT paradise, they certainly didn't produce a decent web-page; looks like it was the product of some sort of high-school competition.

Maybe they should have focused on how they would perform their duties, and how they would get the job done, rather than going with their bog standard self-glorifying "empty virtue-signalling" and "aesthetics" PR approach?

Love it: "#1 STRONGEST JOB MARKET IN THE EU" (bahaha, sure, according to "statistics sweden", whatever that means!)

Somehow Stockholm's hospitality is defined by how many hotel rooms it has?

And funny how their website doesn't say anything about variety and ease of finding rental accommodations, and "value-for-the-money" homes, for said 900 employees!

5th hand rental contract anyone?

I agree that the website is a bit crap.

But - there are two major EU level health agencies; the ECDC is the other one, and it is already in Stockholm (on the edge of the Karolinska Solna campus). Stockholm was never going to get the EMA as well.

And one suspects that the ECDC already knows all about the perils (and occasional benefits) of life in Sweden and was asked for its opinion.

There are so many red tapes for EU workers in Sweden. Just look at how they illegally deal with personal numbers.

And this is only the formal way. The entire culture of "if you are not Swede or refugee" please f*&k off is pretty heavy.

They should now even try to relocate the EU institutions that are already in Sweden...

Finding a job and getting a personal number in Sweden is easy.

And getting a place to live is easy as well. All you have to do is register in the bostadskö and wait twenty years. Simples.
