In spite of the huge challenges the covid-19 pandemic presented for most businesses worldwide, in 2020 we successfully contributed to new jobs, inflow of foreign capital and increased productivity.
In 2020, our work promoting investment and trade contributed to 31 international agreements. The international companies we've helped invested capital worth approximately SEK 90 million in Skåne in 2020. As a result of the international agreements, approximately 118 jobs were created in the Skåne region in 2020.
We saw increased interest and willingness to invest in particular sectors during the pandemic; namely the life science and technology sectors, but also the food sector.
