A strategy to internationalize Sweden's Capital region. Executive summary.
To succeed in global competition, Sweden’s capital city region needs to become more internationalized–it needs to spur exports, imports and investment. More businesses need to globalize their operations. The region needs to attract more international talent. It needs to gear up its exchange with key growth markets.
