On Thursday 20 February, Minister for Finance Anders Borg presented a new forecast of the outcome for the Swedish economy and the public finances. The Swedish economy will gradually return to normal after years of financial and debt crisis, according to the Ministry of Finance February forecast. The deficits will slowly return to balance and surplus. In 2018, net lending is estimated to reach over 1 per cent of GDP.
"It is now important to strengthen the buffers and again build up a surplus in public finances. A small open economy with a large financial sector should safeguard strong public finances to protect jobs and welfare when there is turbulence in the world around us," says Minister for Finance Anders Borg.
