Sweden is eyeing to hire Filipino software engineers and health care workers, Swedish Ambassador to Manila Harald Fries said.

Fries said Sweden lacks 30,000 software engineers and the Philippines can fill in that gap.

“If they move to Sweden, it’s not necessary to know Swedish in order to work as a software engineer because the work is being done in English,” Fries said, as quoted by the Manila Bulletin.

The top diplomat said Swedish businessmen are also thinking of setting business in the Philippines instead and take advantage of the rich labor market of software developers.

Fries noted that the IT sector in the Philippines has been growing fast with “full of creative and innovative people.”

“Swedish people can come here and try their luck and start their new business and make it. That I didn’t see 25 years ago,” the diplomat said. Fries was assigned in Manila after the Edsa revolution.

Sweden is also mulling the possibility of recruiting Filipino nurses and caregivers. However, unlike software developers, recruits need to learn how to speak Swedish before they can work there.

There are around 15,000 Filipinos in Sweden, many are married to Swedish nationals
