West Sweden – A dynamic region


Stefan Gustavsson


West Sweden – one of the most globalized regions in the world, with a long history of international trade. Large international corporations act alongside a more fast-paced start-up environment. The coming decade will bring challenges for all our companies. Our manufacturing industry will face digitalization that will revolutionize both production and products as well as introduce completely new types of business opportunities, not even thought of today. Our region is growing, both in terms of population and businesses, which requires a well-functioning growing city, high-end infrastructure, an openness to new competence and innovative solutions. All with the common goal of creating a region where people like to work, live, and spend their days.
