Regional Development Strategy – The Open Skåne 2030

In June, 2014, the Regional Council accepted “The Open Skåne 2030” as the Regional Development Strategy for Skåne County.

The strategy has been developed in collaboration with municipalities, authorities, universities, business organisations, the ideas-based sector, inhabitants and other parties working with development issues.

The Regional Development Strategy is to formulate and create a broad consensus as to a joint goal for Skåne. Together, we have agreed on the goal “The Open Skåne 2030”.

The goal was developed over the course of a couple of years through analyses, meetings and conversations with municipalities, authorities, trade and industry, business organisations, the ideas-based sector, etc. The Regional Development Strategy was accepted by the Regional Council in June, 2014.

Together, we know where Skåne is at here and now. We have identified and accepted the existing challenges – but also taken Skåne’s good conditions into account. We have come together with joint goal “The Open Skåne”.

Goal for Skåne 2030

Skåne in 2030 is open. Open-minded, open to all, and with an open landscape. We welcome new people and new influences with open arms. We are the portal to Sweden and out into the world.

The Development Strategy includes five prioritised standpoints for reaching the goal. There are a number of substrategies and a few goals for each standpoint.

The five prioritised standpoints are:

  • Skåne shall offer belief in the future and quality of life
  • Skåne shall become a strong motor for sustainable growth
  • Skåne shall make use of its geographically multicentric structure
  • Skåne shall develop the welfare services of tomorrow
  • Skåne shall be globally attractive
