Latest data suggest that of the  of 230 000 new jobs created in Sweden since 2006, 160 000 went to those Swedes of foreign-born extraction.

More than 100,000 of the new jobs have gone to people born outside Europe, said Swedish Minister for Integration, Erik Ullenhag to radio Sweden.

The current government that has been in office for close to 8 years seems to be happy that since 2006, a lot of the jobs created have gone to foreign-born. No less than 160 000 of 230 000 new jobs have gone to people born outside Sweden, according to figures from Statistics Sweden.
