Investments in Sweden create high value jobs

Sweden ranks top three when comparing job value created by incoming foreign investment projects.

Global foreign investment activity returned to growth in 2014, according to IBM’s Global Location Trends: 2015 Annual Report. The report outlines the latest trends in corporate location selection, showing where companies are locating and expanding their businesses and creating jobs around the world. The report states that after Ireland and Switzerland, Sweden attracts high value investments projects, which create high-paying and knowledge-intensive jobs often related to industries such as life science and ICT.
