Larger budget surplus this year turns into deficit in 2017

15 June 2016 - A strong Swedish economy coupled with some temporary effects lead to a central government surplus of SEK 41 billion this year, according to a new forecast from the Debt Office. The surplus turns into a deficit of SEK 42 billion next year as some of the temporary effects wane. The total borrowing requirement for the two years is lower than in the previous forecast, leading to a reduced issue volume of government bonds. Larger budget surplus this year turns into deficit in 2017
