Swedish business pressure group call on government to make it easy for first-rate international universities to establish here

Swedish private sector has succeeded under the current government to
penetrate sectors that were previously seen as more welfare – facing.
But various authorities such as the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise
would want to see more foreign “high brand” universities to storm the
Swedish university market.
The confederation writes in one of its recent news cast that the
Swedish higher education market had been hard to foreign higher
education institutions to establish branch campuses. Apparently this is

So for that the confederation writes that, this should get
policy-makers to rethink and concentrate on simplifying the regulatory
framework involved, pursuing active marketing, and implementing
coordinated efforts for this.
Tobias Krantz, Head of Education, Research and Innovation at the
Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, and Maria Rankka CEO of the
Stockholm Chamber of Commerce argue in their write up among others that
world class higher education and research are critical to a Sweden that
must remain an attractive country for entrepreneurship, investment,
jobs, and welfare – now and in coming years.
Therefore as the demands in the global economy continually sharpen,
opening Swedish higher education to new influences, to change, and to
allow new participants in the market is essential for the country to
improve quality and strengthen competitiveness. Read more from their report.
