Skåne occupies a strategic location at the gateway to northern Europe and has made a solid contribution to Swedish growth. In the years prior to the crisis (2000‐2007), Skåne contributed 12% of aggregate Swedish GDP growth, behind Stockholm and Västra Götaland. Immediately prior to the crisis, as growth in the rest of Sweden began to decline, economic growth in Skåne accelerated, rising from just under 4.5% in 2005‐2006 to over 7.1% in 2006‐2007, though this promising trend was reversed when Swedish growth began to fall in 2008. Skåne was particularly hard hit by the downturn, but made a relatively quick recovery in 2009.
