The European Commission has proposed dipping into a fund, created to help member states in the event of a disaster, in the event of a disorderly Brexit. The Swedish government has not considered the proposal as yet but Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson says Swedish firms cannot expect any direct support from Stockholm to compensate for higher tariffs after Brexit. Indirectly, however, it can provide support, she says, mentioning two initiatives that enable companies, municipalities and regions to apply for funding for investment and research to promote the shift to a sustainable society.
The government can also help mitigate the impact of a hard Brexit by ensuring smooth trade when tariffs increase, according to the minister.
