Sweden is seen in Europe and around the globe as a modern and safe country with a reputation for being competitive and innovative. It has one of the highest standards of living in the world and a respected system of democracy, equality, and individual rights. Most Swedes are able to speak English at a high level, being taught the language in school from an early age.
In Sweden, we have a particular focus on certain areas, like animal health and welfare, which goes far beyond European standards. We excel in organic farming, and environmental awareness is noticeable everywhere, from food production to garbage handling and public transportation.
