Business slams government policy

A PMP Marknadskonsult survey shows that 65% of Sweden’s listed companies are unhappy with the centre-left government’s fiscal policies, saying they have done little or nothing at all to contribute to growth and job creation. They also say that the government will need to up its game if it is to win the vote of corporate leaders in 2018.

The poll also showed that companies want to see lower payroll charges and taxes. This would allow them to invest in research and employees, which in turn would boost the economy. Highest on the companies’ wish list is better integration of new arrivals on the labour market.
