Sweden’s strong economic growth has reached its end, according to a report published Wednesday from the National Institute of Economic Research.
The government agency reports in its forecast that there are “clear indications” a slowdown will continue for the rest of the year.
Radio Sweden spoke with the institute’s director of forecasting Ylva Hedén Westerdahl about the causes behind the slower growth and why that pace could be better for the Swedish economy in the long run.
