Export industry

The financial crisis peak of autumn 2008 made it difficult for Swedish exporters to obtain loans with long maturities, which is a prerequisite for many export deals. The Riksdag (Swedish Parliament) decided to increase the availability of export financing.

Part of the associated measures is the National Debt Office's task to make available a loan facility for the Swedish Export Credit Corporation. In 2014, the loan facility amounts to SEK 80 billion and may be used for lending within the CIRR system for officially supported credit.

During the period 2009 to 2013, the loan facility amounted to SEK 100 billion, and could be used for commercial export financing as well as for lending within the CIRR system. The Swedish Export Credit Corporation has not yet made use of the loan facility.
