Ines Junéa Uusmann (born Johansson; October 30, 1948 in Rolfstorp, Sweden) is a Swedish politician.[1]

She started her career as a trade union activist and became an MP in 1990. She became communication minister in 1994, a post she would hold until 1998, when she left parliament. She at one stage was quoted in a newspaper saying that the Internet was a fad and that it would pass and soon be over, a statement for which she has often been ridiculed.

From 1999 until 2008, she served as director-general for The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning (Boverket).[2]

Ines Uusmann is the daughter of Thure G. Johansson, discoverer of the Bocksten Man.
