Nordic Agenda 2016: Bringing Growth Back To Focus

The Nordic countries are losing their competitiveness, and a transformation is needed to change direction. We believe that by addressing the workforce gap—caused by the aging population—and by stimulating the most productive industries, the Nordics could return to a path of healthy economic growth. In 2014, we created the Nordic Agenda, a set of ten recommendations to transform the Nordics into a region aimed toward competitiveness and growth. We have now followed up on their progress. The Nordics have slowly started to embark on the agenda, but we feel the speed of change is still insufficient and there is a lot more to be done.
