The Strategic Business Council

The Strategic Business Council in Linköping is an arena for conversation between local political leaders, local government offices that impact the business climate and, of course, representatives of Linköping's business community.

The Strategic Business Council exists to strengthen the dialogue between the municipality and the business community. It is a way for the municipality to tune into the business perspective in current matters, not least when those matters may impact the business environment locally. The council even acts as a formal consultation group in local policy making.

The Strategic Business Council is of course not the only contact point between the municipality and the business community. Instead, it complements other contact points such as collaborations with local business associations, company visits, and the ongoing dialogue that takes place through the municipality’s Business service centre. As always, the goal is to contribute to continuous improvements in the business climate and that Linköping continues to be a place where people want to live and work.
