The two parties presented their priorities for the upcoming budget talks

Christian Democrats and Center Party want lower corporate tax

Published fredag 17 augusti 2012 kl 16.01

The Christian Democrat and Centre parties of the ruling centre-right coalition presented their list of priorities for the upcoming autumn budget talks Friday. They are calling for higher grant subsidies for worse-off families, and for parents who want to stay home and take care of their children longer.

Göran Häggländ, chairman of the Christian Democrats, also wants the lower tax rate promised to pensioners to come into effect now.

"We promised to lower taxes for pensioners by US$ 350,000 during this term. We have done this in three incremental steps, and I want to take the fourth step as soon as possible," Hägglund told Radio Sweden.

Centre leader Annie Lööf decided to support the other parties' stance on lowering corporate tax. She said this is one of the most important offensive strategies for boosting business and industry.

The Centre Party will also want to expand upper secondary vocational school programmes by creating an addition 10,000 slots over the next four years. The expansion will cost a little less than US$100 million.

"That will give us results. Nine out of ten people who complete a vocational school program have jobs within six months," Lööf said.
