Two brochures on Sweden's forests have been published in English in the past week. 'Competitiveness requires gender equality' is the English translation of the Government's gender equality strategy for the forestry sector. The gender equality strategy is limited to the forestry sector and has three focus areas: education, working life and private forest ownership.
The second brochure is a translation of the Government's action plan 'Sweden - the Forest Kingdom'. The Forest Kingdom is the Government's vision for creating new job opportunities in connection with Sweden's forests.
