Revealed: The best place in Sweden for businesses

Every year the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv) publishes a ranking of the business environment in Sweden's 290 municipalities

with the idea of highlighting the places with the most favourable conditions for starting and running a business. It surveys 31,300 business owners and uses that information combined with stats from both Statistics Sweden (SCB) and credit reference agency UC to compile the ranking. And the best place in Sweden for doing business according to the study is Solna, topping the charts for the 10th year in a row. The business-dominated area, which is within Stockholm County but a separate municipality from the City of Stockholm, performed particularly well in the "municipal tax", "proportion of people employed" and "contracting" categories. Sollentuna and Nacka, which are also in Stockholm County, came second and third, but the City of Stockholm performed poorly, dropping 27 places to 123rd.
