"Skills supply is one of Region Norrbotten's biggest challenges. Therefore, Ulrika feels like an obvious choice as the new regional director with her long experience of such issues, says Anders Öberg (S), chairman of the regional board.
That's what she should prioritize
Ulrika Sundquist, herself says this in a press release:
– It is a major challenge to secure the supply of skills throughout our county and my experience is that difficult tasks are best handled together.
