In a move that deviated from Denmark’s traditionally deferential approach to the United States, Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen has openly criticized President Donald Trump’s executive order
The idea was mooted in an annual report handed to the government on Tuesday by the Digitalisation Commission, a publicly-funded body set up in 2012 with the goal of making the Nordic nation the "best in the world at exploiting the opportunities of digitalisation".
The commission's report argues that the growth of Sweden's IT sector is threatened by a shortage of women, with an already small proportion of females working in the industry decreasing in recent years.
It states that just 15 percent of students taking IT courses in the Scandinavian country are women and suggests that one way of persuading more girls to sign up to technology-based degrees could be to write off their debts after graduation. University courses are free in Sweden, but many students still need to take out loans in order to pay for their accommodation and other living expenses.
