Trade Policy and Regulations in Sweden

Overview by Globlatrade.net:

Foreign Trade in Figures

Sweden is very open to foreign trade, which represents more than 90% of the GDP.The EU is reinforcing its position as primary partner. In general, half the exports are destined for the EU and the most of imports come from there. Trade with neighboring Northern Baltic countries and Russia has increased rapidly, while exports to China and India show a substantial drop. Trade in motor vehicles and metals is very dynamic. The government supports Swedish companies' activity in strategic markets. The Swedish trade balance is expected to remain in surplus, even if it has been affected by the fall in international trade caused by the effects of the financial crisis.
