Former Swedish prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, claims that Stockholm will have 3 million people - in just 13 years. "Openness" will lead to it, he hopes. But Trump is a threat to the world order and to Sweden, he states.
Lower wages for Swedish industrial workers was on the agenda when former prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt held one of his lucrative speeches at an industry seminar this weekend.
Meanwhile, the former prime minister promoted "openness," claiming that Stockholm will have 3 million people - in just 13 years.
- In 2030, Stockholm will have over three million inhabitants. Anyone who understands how demands are made, will have an enormous development potential, said Fredrik Reinfeldt during his lecture, according to the industry journal Arbetsmarknadsnytt.
Reinfeldt highlighted the immigration policy as the key reason for the Swedish industry's success, and he points to "openness and free trade" as key points.
But for Sweden, there are also immediate threats in the world, believes Reinfeldt. Britons voted for Brexit and the American people decided to elect Donald Trump. These things will lead to the deterioration of the Swedish export industry, he says. For example is the negotiations between the EU and the US on a new free trade agreement put on hold.
- Now we see protectionist winds blowing. The increasing protectionism means a huge blow to the export industry and thus Sweden, Reinfeldt warned.
- Trump will harm the world order and the world trade. How much he will hurt it I do not know, it has been two months of his presidency, it is just the rest left, he said.
