Sweden stands at AAA with stable outlook

ola_ericson-sergels_torg-565x239
In the light of Brexit and the political and economic turmoil that has followed, multinationals’ investment and location decisions are more important than ever. In order for global enterprises to meet their full potential in the European market, Sweden offers a safe haven for long-term investments, locating in one of the world’s most open, globalised and stable economies.

Establishing a European headquarter in Sweden is a natural step for many globally minded companies, offering access to EU, the world’s largest single market and over 500 million consumers. Stockholm is the business and financial centre of northern Europe attracting more than half of all multinationals’ headquarters with operations in Scandinavia.

-       The entire structure of doing business is simplified in Sweden. As a result you are able to accelerate what you are trying to achieve saysByrne Murphy, Chairman of DigiPlex. 

14,000 foreign-owned companies employ 25 percent of the private workforce and account for 50 percent of Swedish exports. Sweden’s FDI stock is among the world’s highest, a clear endorsement of the business-friendly regulations and thriving environment for innovation and growth.

To start a company is quick and straightforward. Sweden has an efficient transparent public sector with minimal bureaucracy and no restrictions on foreign ownership or operations. These are some of the reasons why Forbes has listed Sweden in top for countries to do business in. On top of that, the majority of population speaks English and the quality of life is among the highest in the world.
