Tillväxtverket, The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, is a government agency that works to promote sustainable growth and competitive companies in all parts of Sweden. We do this by supporting and strengthening companies and regions.
Financial support in connection with the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
Tillväxtverket has the responsibility for the distribution of financial support for short-time working, a support being provided to enable employers to retain their personnel during the pending crisis and to be able to quickly get back to full speed again when the situation turns around.
Aggregate information from Swedish public authorities to business enterprises in relation to the coronavirus can be found on www.verksamt.se.
The help we provide is of real benefit to companies here and now and enables them and the various regions in Sweden to meet the challenges of the future.
