The Gothenburg region is growing. In 2035, the region may potentially be home to 1.3 million inhabitants, an increase of a quarter of a million compared with today. This growth leads to large investments. The Gothenburg region is on the verge of substantial investments in both infrastructure and urban development in the form of new housing, business premises and commercial properties.
The economy of the Gothenburg region is continuing to demonstrate its strength. Its already robust economic situation has grown stronger during the spring. This has resulted in a higher total gross pay as more jobs, including new well-paid jobs, are created and unemployment falls.
In the short term “Trumponomics”, the economic policy that the United States is expected to pursue going forward, is unlikely to threaten the current strong economic activity in the Gothenburg region, but longer-term it would be naïve not to warn of a negative impact.
