Government to review building capacity

After several industries, including construction companies, have reported labour shortages the government has announced that it will review the labour capacity within the construction industry to ensure that the increasing need for new housing is met.

Peter Eriksson, the (Green) minister responsible for housing, says “in order to be able to build more housing we need to ensure that there are enough people working within the construction industry, and preferably more women.” Eriksson also wants to make better use of new arrivals’ competence.
