Summer is here – once again

ingerWritten juni 16th, 2014 by inger

With the risk of sounding like a track stuck on repeat I have to say that time has once again flown by and we’ve almost reached half ways into 2014. This year is special in many ways, not only because this is the year that Umeå reigns as the European Capital of Culture, but this year is also a super election year with public elections to the EU and to the Swedish Parliament. No one can tell what the results from the national elections will be in September, we will just have to be patient and see how the outcome will effect our job with inward investment promotion. From our perspective there are a number of topics that are of particular interest; infrastructure, labor laws, talent matching, company and energy taxes and the coming government’s view on export and investment promotion.

But for now let’s focus on the summer that lies ahead of us with light summer nights and days. If you have not visited northern Sweden during summer you are missing out. Our region offers a spectacular experience like no other. Regardless if you want to fill you days with adventure and new challenges, want to party at one of the festivals or if you wish to relish in serene seclusion with naught but the quietness keeping you company.

We at VIA will enjoy the summer outdoors, but our office will be manned during the entire summer in case you want to get a hold of us.
