Stockholm, Sweden - BTS Group AB (publ), the world's leading learning and development company within the segment of business simulations and discovery-based learning is proud to announce a strategic partnership with The Swedish Trade Council. The partnership was formed in order for BTS to assist the Trade Council with the development of the methods, pedagogy and technology for the SymbioCity Scenario Simulation.

In 2006 The Swedish Trade Council received an assignment from the Swedish government to create a communication platform for marketing Swedish environmental technology (Green Tech) internationally. SymbioCity is the result of this assignment. , The concept and trademark "SymbioCity" was launched in 2008 in order to share best-practice and knowledge of the Swedish approach to sustainability.

The key to success of the SymbioCity concept is to offer a more scalable model, which may be adapted to the different development levels of cities and towns as well as to different planning situations. Another key to success is to deliver value - getting more for less.

To deliver this, The Swedish Trade Council together with The Delegation for Sustainable Cities, commissioned BTS Group to develop a relatively short simulation (approximately 20 minutes) which , communicated the SymbioCity concept to a variety of target groups in an efficient and engaging way. However, the first priority is to communicate it internationally to city council members, politicians and other important people with influence over environmental decisions in the local community.

"Everywhere in the world where we present Swedish Green Tech companies and the SymbioCity concept, we are becoming increasingly aware of how the focus is mainly on isolated problems, rather than an integrated, holistic approach to urban development." says Anders Hallesjö, Executive Director of Strategic Growth Industries at The Swedish Trade Council. "The overall objective of the Scenario-based simulation is to increase awareness and interest for the approach that the Swedish companies and government have to urban development , where Swedish companies are leading the way. We already have a number of successful companies that can deliver products, knowledge and services in this important environmental area. Finally, the important message we are trying to get across is that there are substantial synergies to be gained in planning and coordinating these projects in the right way," concludes Anders Hallersjö.

"We are proud that we have been chosen by the Swedish Trade Council and entrusted with such an important and wide-reaching initiative," says Henrik Ekelund, President and CEO of BTS Group AB. "This is strong evidence of our ability to deliver top quality projects based on state-of-the-art technology and our deep capability in areas of strategic alignment."

     When you sell an investment at a profit, you will owe capital gains taxes on the money you make. Fortunately, investors can take steps to minimize the capital gains taxes they pay and keep more of their money in their own pockets. Choosing the right kinds of investments, and choosing the right vehicles for those investments, are two ways to cut down on capital gains taxes without impacting the return on your investment. minimize capital gains
