Sorsele municipality was awarded “The best business climate in Northern Sweden” in 2018 and 2019. We see this as a sign that the companies in our municipality are doing a fantastic job, and that the council in Sorsele municipality is working hard to create the best possible conditions for the companies to grow.

Forestry, agriculture, construction and transport are sectors that rank high compared to the national average. So does culture related services.

The tourism industry has great potential and is developing in a positive way thanks to increased competence and cooperation, but also thanks to many of the major natural and cultural assets being made accessible. In connection with the reindeer husbandry sector, which is centred around the Sami villages of Ran and Gran, several companies have been established within tourism and the processing of their own products. The municipality is also home to several niche companies that produce food and wood products with a very good reputation nationally as well as internationally.

Thanks to extensive fibre broadband internet, new markets and networks can be developed and more companies in the service sector can also be run remotely. Strong growth is expected in the computer and electronics sector, in part as a result of the development of the digital internet connection.
