Launching a New Digital Agenda: How Sweden Can Become the Global Leader in Digitization and Technology
The development of the Swedish economy and the country's ability to remain competitive, are largely dependent on how well Sweden can leverage digitization and technology to drive economic growth and job creation. In the early 2010s, Sweden was the world leader in digitization. Since then, however, other countries have increased their investments in digital solutions and technology, while Swedish investments have stagnated. As a consequence, Sweden has lost its digital leadership and is on a negative trajectory in BCG’s e-Intensity Index. It is time for Sweden to launch a new digital agenda, with the aspiration to make Sweden the best country in the world at leveraging digitization and technology to drive economic growth and job creation.
