  • Stronger recovery in Swedish economy than expected

    The Swedish economy is showing a stronger recovery than expected during the autumn. The labour market situation has also developed more positively compared with previous assessments. The employment rate is expected to be somewhat higher this year and next year compared with the assessment in the Budget Bill for 2021, while unemployment is expected to be lower. However, in the future, activity is expected to be hampered as a consequence of an increased spread of the COVID-19 virus and restrictions. This is clear from the Ministry of Finance’s most recent economic forecast, presented today by Minister for Finance Magdalena Andersson.

The Swedish fiscal policy framework

The fiscal policy framework is an instrument to ensure that fiscal policy is sustainable and transparent in the long term.

Certain principles are regulated by law, while others are based on the practice that has gradually developed since the 1990s.

In June 2016, a cross-party agreement was concluded on changes to the fiscal policy framework. In April 2018, the Government presented a written communication to the Riksdag containing a cohesive description of the framework.
