Who is Economyaat?
Economyaat is a Swedish platform for Arabic-speaking Swedes, operating nationally, that provides proper tools to increase economic integration in the Swedish society.
Economies was founded back in 2019 to achieve integration and mitigate the impact of the information gap in society when the difference between language and culture becomes an obstacle.
Economyaat is the only platform for Arabic-speaking residents interested in economic matters. The platform has managed to reach a wide audience through interactive and unique content on social media platforms.
We have founded Economyaat to bridge the gap between the Swedish authorities and those who in need to have a good understanding of the Swedish economy, the economic culture and how Swedish society is structured.

It all started in the year 2019 through a Youtube channel. The founder, Mohamed Barhamji, noticed during his years of working in banking sector, that there is a huge gap in economics knowledge among most of the Arabic speaking customers.
Mohammed believed that this gap should be bridged through spreading skills and education in Arabic, to give everyone the chance for an independent economic life.
Mohamed then began recording videos explaining in a simple language the Swedish economic concepts and rules to all Arabic speaking audience.
In partnership with Ahmed Korbi, who is also an economist, the idea was developed after that, to be Economyaat platform and website was created.
