The ambitious vision,
Stockholm 2025, sees Stockholm as the world’s most innovation-driven economy. The Stockholm region accounts for a large and growing share of Sweden’s new businesses, population and added value. The region has broad industry representation with strong capacity for renewal and growth and is home to several internationally renowned universities.
When compared internationally,
the region is considered robust, successful and innovative. However, Stockholm is a relatively small region in a world of increasing global competition. The region faces a number of challenges. But when addressed the right way, these challenges can be the driving force for change and growth.
