Report: Sweden needs more foreign-born workers

Published tisdag 2 juli 2013 kl 11.02

Many Swedish municipalities will face difficulties filling job vacancies when people born in the 1940's - the large post-war generation - have retired, according to a new report from the Swedish Public Employment Service.

Until the year 2025 it urban areas in Sweden that will have most people of working age, while smaller municipalities and rural areas face growing depopulation.

The generation shift on the labour market will sharpen the imbalances that already exist between regions, says the report which concludes that it will be increasingly important to get as many people as possible into work.

Young adults must get an education, women should work to a larger extent, but most importantly, foreign-born people must enter the job market.

Developing strategies to attract people with an immigrant background to areas with a labour shortage should become an important political issue for the municipalities in future, according to the report authors.
