Stockholm Tops the Lists Again!

Sometimes, as a Stockholmer, I just need to do a little bragging and blatant self-promotion (on behalf of the city)!
FDi Magazine, put out by the Financial Times, has just ranked "The European Cities and Regions of the Future". Stockholm nabbed the first place spot as Best European Region of the Future! An independent jury analyzed the statistics from 60 regions in Europe, looking at such factors as economical potential, cost efficiency, work force, infrastructure, business friendly environment and quality of life. Looking at just the quality of life (life expectancy, infant mortality, education, income and doctors per capita), the city of Stockholm took an honorable second place. But remember, Stockholm isn't only a great place to live... it is also a great place to visit! Thanks to Metro Newspaper for the information.
