Malmö is the commercial centre of southern Sweden and an international city. This is expressed, not least, by the fact that Malmö has 300.000 residents who speak some 100 languages and belong to about 170 different nationalities. 

Heavy investments in new technology and training programmes of high calibre have made Malmö a city of knowledge. Malmö University is Sweden's latest venture in the field of higher education, accommodating some 20.000 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. The City of Malmö is enhancing an attractive business environment and a dynamic business community in Malmö.
Malmö has during several years focused on creating an urban sustainable development. The Western harbour area in Malmö is an internationally leading example of environmental adaptation of a densely built urban environment. It is also a driving force in Malmö's development towards environmental sustainability. A fundamental ecological approach to planning, building and construction is a key tool in the creation of the district. Innovative ideas and new techniques enhance the environmental standard of the area.
