One hundred thousand new jobs within two years

Within the next two years, 105,000 news jobs will be created in Sweden, according to the the national employment service. 

In its jobs forecast, the national employment service said on Tuesday that it expected unemployment to fall from eight percent this year to 7.9 percent in 2015 and 7.7 percent in 2016. The new jobs will come foremost in the service sector.

"It is a little worse than we thought in the previous forecast in the spring from the Employment Service. Among other things, events abroad have weakened the economy and the Swedish export industry is having difficulty in taking-off," says Swedish Radio News' economy reporter Anders Jelmin.
