According to Henrik Arwidsson, Sweden has made good use of its own resources, for example the cold climate can be turned into hot business, one good example is that Facebook’s computers and Data center is located in northern city Luleå.  Sweden has been investing in music since long time ago, so there has been famous bands like ABBA , Roxette and many others.  In recent years, the Game industry such as Minecraft is prosperous. And these are all for export.  Let alone they also supported green tech companies to export.
