According to analyses conducted by Business Region Göteborg, the automotive industry is the sector that delivers the greatest spin-off effects in the rest of the economy. One new job in the automotive industry creates an additional 2.4 job opportunities elsewhere.
Consequently, the research-focused Geely endeavour, with space for at least 3,500 employees, is important for several reasons. It confirms the Gothenburg region's strong standing in expertise and innovation and can lead to other actors also choosing Gothenburg. Parallel to this, it broadens both the employment market and expertise in the region. The opportunity to get involved in the development of new transport services is appealing in itself and will attract even more skilled Labour.
