38 000 companies participated in the survey and after several years in which entrepreneurs assessed the investment climate in the country to have been either better or somewhat positive, the trend has now turned.

On a rating scale of 1 – 6 was the business environment in 2006 at 3.3, and then rose slightly after the alliance came to power, but the past year has again seen deterioration back at 3.3.

“The business environment is a broad question and you have to take this trend change for themselves and working on improvement and change,” says Elisabeth Lundström of the Swedish Enterprise.
