Guarantee programmes

Ship, picture.

The Riksdag may decide to provide a larger number of guarantees for smaller amounts in various programmes. This kind of authorisation would sanction us to issue a guarantee.

There are a number of areas in which we can issue guarantees. For most of these, no guarantees have been issued at present.

Guarantees for Swedish Foreign Service personnel

In accordance with a government decision in 2000 (Ministry for Foreign Affairs 2000/1146/P-AV), we can also provide guarantees for Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Sida personnel stationed abroad. Around ten of these guarantees exist at present. They are issued to banks that grant loans to civil servants for costs associated with their moving abroad.

Agriculture, horticulture and rural areas

Previously, there have also been guarantee programmes in the areas of agriculture, horticulture and companies in rural areas These programmes are now closed, but around 15 credit guarantees still remain for loans of about SEK 2 million in total.
