Sweden comes out relatively well in new forecasts from the OECD.
Growth here this year is predicted to be 1.4 percent, rising to 1.7 percent next year. That is significantly better than in the Eurozone, which is expected to see negative growth this year, but just below the forecast for the entire OECD.
Unemployment in Sweden is predicted to remain steady at 7.6 percent this year and next. That’s better than the 8 percent forecast this year for the OECD, 8.1 percent for the US, and 10.8 percent for the Eurozone.
