In a debate article in Dagens Industri (DI) on Saturday, ABB Sweden’s CEO Johan Söderström wrote that the company has been impacted by experts, who work for the Swedish company, being deported due to minor administrative errors.
The experts are people who have come to Sweden on a job offer, have laid down roots, learned Swedish, worked, paid tax and contributed to society. He writes that ABB considers industry’s competitive advantage to be dependent on Sweden’s capacity to attract talent. ABB urges the government and parliament to introduce an amnesty for labour immigrants who, after several years in Sweden, have been affected by deportation orders.
Sweden is in desperate need of labour. “We want to drive progress that strengthens Sweden’s competitive power and contributes to Swedish welfare.”
