“There are good foundations in Iceland that have helped us along; a resilient and well educated population, a young and flexible labor force, abundant resources and beautiful nature that is attracting ever more visitors from abroad than ever before. The future for my country is therefore bright,” he said.

Sigmundur said that changes to the corporate tax environment were planned to encourage investment. Emphasis on export sector growth, innovation and utilization of opportunities for future growth were also scheduled.

“… this government intends to make Iceland an attractive alternative for investors, both by taking actions on the domestic front and also by forging closer international relations east, west and up north,” he said.
