Unemployment measure

Special economic zones proposal aims to create jobs, but draws criticism

Published onsdag 8 augusti 2012 kl 10.26

The government wants to establish about 30 special economic zones in Sweden where employers would pay lower social security contributions for their employees, Swedish Radio News reports.

The aim of the proposal, which was presented Monday, is to lower unemployment and stimulate economic growth in the identified areas.

The idea is inspired by a model used in France, where special economic zones have been used since the 1990s.

The opposition, left-leaning Social Democrats are critical of the government's proposal.

In a debate on Swedish Radio News P1 program Wednesday morning, Andreas Schönström, municipal commissioner in Malmö, said the policy would divide neighborhoods and skew business competition.
