City of Malmö
Malmö is the commercial centre of southern Sweden and an international city. This is expressed, among other things, by the fact that Malmö has 280.000 residents who speak some 100 languages and belong to 164 different nationalities.
Malmö is undergoing a transition from being an industrial city to a city of knowledge. Older industries have been replaced by investments in new technology and training programmes of high calibre. The University of Malmö, which opened in 1998, is Sweden's latest venture in the field of higher education, accommodating some 15.000 students.
The strongest sectors in Malmö are logistics, retail and wholesale trade, construction, and property. There are also a number of well-known companies within biotechnology and medical technology, environmental technology, IT, and digital media fields. Co-operation between colleges, science parks, and companies provides a sound basis for entrepreneurs and creative development in Malmö.
An exceptionally well-developed infrastructure makes Malmö very easy to reach, whatever means of transport you use to get here: boat, plane, train or car. Malmö has an international harbour and the airports Kastrup and Sturup are only half an hour's journey from the centre of Malmö.
