Two new ministries from 1 January 2023
As of 1 January 2023, two new ministries will be created. One will be responsible for climate and enterprise, and the other for rural affairs and infrastructure. The ministries concerned will remain in their current form until then.
The purpose of the reorganisation is to highlight climate and energy issues. The new Ministry of Climate and Enterprise will gather expertise and experience in the areas of energy, climate, the environment and business.
“A good energy mix and green energy policy will benefit household finances. By combining these issues within one ministry, we can focus more clearly on the climate transition. Together we’re working quickly for a long-term climate policy that gets Sweden through the energy crisis,” says Minister for Energy, Business and Industry Ebba Busch.
The new Ministry of Rural Affairs and Infrastructure will gather expertise and experience on rural, forestry, transport and housing issues.
"There need to be good conditions for living throughout the country, which is why we consider it natural to bring these issues together in a single ministry. We need investments that strengthen Swedish agriculture, safeguard our sustainable forestry and ensure functioning infrastructure throughout the country,” says Minister for Rural Affairs Peter Kullgren.
