Sweden’s exports have broken all records and, for the first time, exports from all counties are increasing. “This is extremely pleasing and shows that exports work as an engine for economic growth in the whole country,” says Trade Minister Ann Linde. Sweden’s exports of goods increased by 10 per cent in 2017, to SEK 1,307 billion.
In addition to healthy global growth and therefore demand for Swedish products, the government is also taking the credit for the increase in exports nationwide.
“We discovered in 2014 that Sweden’s exports were not going as well as they should and that our economy therefore grew mainly due to strong domestic consumption. For this reason, we developed and launched a powerful strategy,” says Ann Linde. (DI: 6)
