The municipality of Boden takes the Swedish Championship gold in the exercise of authority
In SKR's (Sweden's municipalities and regions) annual Open Comparison Business Climate (Insight) 2020, Boden's municipality ends up at the top and thus tops the ranking throughout Sweden.
- Hard and long-term work that clearly shows how highly we value and prioritize cooperation with our entrepreneurs and our local business community. An important signal to many of the external actors who are now increasingly coming here, says Mats Berg, municipal manager and business manager.
The survey is annual and is based on an NKI-based questionnaire response where the local business community can assess the municipality's authority exercise in predetermined areas such as fire protection, building permits, land lease, environmental and health protection, food control and serving permits.
- It is proof that we in the municipality of Boden take business development very seriously. Extremely gratifying and important as we are now facing a social change of a rarely seen kind. We have an awesome journey ahead of us and here we as an authority and collaboration partner will really need to be on our toes as it looks like we will be full for some time to come, says Claes Nordmark, municipal councilor.
