Profit for the Swedish Defence

The Swedish Defence made a profit for the first time in 2009. The surplus amounts to between 140 million - 210 million US dollars, according to Swedish Television SVT.

The defence will be able to keep some 110 million of that, which among others will be used for hiring new non-commissioned officers in the summer, when the system with national military service will end.
