Swedish economy remains strong and budget surplus grows

19 kesäkuuta 2018 - The Swedish economy is growing at a good pace and the central government budget is expected to show a surplus of SEK 90 billion this year and SEK 69 billion next year. Despite the stronger budget balance the Debt Office makes no change to its borrowing in government bonds. Reducing borrowing from an already historically low level would further worsen liquidity in the market. Swedish economy remains strong and budget surplus grows
