How Swedish businesses support productivity and growth in the UK
Swedish businesses have been present in the UK and contributed to the British economy and society for centuries. Today, Sweden is the UK's 8th largest investor. In 2021 alone, Swedish investments created 1,716 UK jobs. (Source: UK Department for International Trade). The Swedish business footprint in the UK has previously not been documented and communicated in a coherent way. A new study, performed by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the UK, in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden in London and Business Sweden, examines the contribution Swedish businesses make to the regional growth of the UK. What does the regional reach look like? Where are job opportunities created, and what investments are Swedish businesses making across the UK?
