The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce wants more people to open their eyes to the life science industry's importance to the country's capital region, the organization writes in a post on Linkedin.

The announcement comes in connection with the chamber's new repport, Livsviktigt för huvudstaden (Vital for the capital), which describes the importance of the life science industry to the regions of Stockholm and Uppsala. The industry in these two regions provides 21,000 jobs across 1,500 companies, has a revenue of SEK 120bn (USD 13.7bn) and indirectly supports 63,000 workers.
