  • The economic crisis is now only visible in the rear-view mirror for many companies and this year all regions in the country are expected to pass pre-pandemic economic performance levels, bank Nordea forecasts.
  • The big economic driving force for the country as a whole is Stockholm, according to a new report from the bank, after being hit hard by the effects of the pandemic.
  • The labour market is now expected to pick up speed in Stockholm and other hard-hit cities, which Nordea says will in turn drive down unemployment throughout the country.
