Swedish economic growth remains healthy but there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration ahead of the central bank’s next meeting, said Riksbank deputy governor Kerstin af Jochnick on Friday. These include concerns over Italy, the escalating trade conflict between the US and China, and the turbulence in Turkey.
Af Jochnick commented that the preliminary estimate of Swedish GDP growth for the second quarter was higher than expected, economic activity remains elevated and the labour market is strong, but underlying inflation remains low.
