Swedish Economic Upturn Continues

Sweden's National Institute of Economic Research predicts a continued upswing for the Swedish economy - with growth in the gross national product reaching 4.6 percent in the second quarter of this year - and approaching 6 or even 7 percent by the end of the year.

The institute sees a growth in employment in this Nordic nation and no sign of any set back resulting from the slow-down in the world economy.
