Sweden's Growth Focus : Almega, a business organization representing over 11,500 service companies in Sweden, emphasizes the need for focus on the Swedish economy as the country experiences low growth and high unemployment. To accelerate growth, Almega suggests reducing the employer's contribution and tax on labor, improving labor recruitment, and matching the unemployed with available jobs. They argue that reforms are essential for the service sector, which plays a crucial role in Sweden's economy, to reach its full potential.
Stockholm Fair demolishing proposals : Moderate opposition councilor Christofer Fjellner proposes demolishing Stockholm Fair to build housing, suggesting options for wooden villas, townhouses, or multi-family houses on the 20-hectare site. Fjellner recommends consulting residents through a survey to avoid conflicts with large construction projects and prioritize residents' preferences in new residential areas. Stockholm Fair, the largest fair and congress facility in the Nordics, has experienced financial losses and is expected to have a deficit of 121 million SEK in 2023.
