The gap in employment rates between university educated foreign-born workers and their Swedish-born counterparts has narrowed, Swedish Radio News Reports. 

According to figures released today by the Swedish Employment Service, Arbetsförmedlingen, the proportion of foreign-born, university graduates in work has increased from 58.1 per cent in 2005, to 70.6 per cent in 2013. 

This compares to 88.7 per cent employment among all graduates. 

Linda Pärlemo, spokesperson for Arbetsförmedlingen, told Swedish Radio News that the situation for foreign-born university graduates has clearly improved in the past ten years.

"The gap between Swedish and foreign-born is getting smaller, and that is of course extremely positive," says Pärlemo.
