As a small and open economy, Sweden and Swedish business are highly dependent on trade with the world at large. Trade creates increased productivity, more well-paid jobs and increased welfare in the long-run. Factors such as improved institutional conditions, migration and technological development are driving globalisation and making it easier for Swedish companies, including new and small ones, to operate in an international market. Growth Analysis will contribute to a more in-depth understanding of the mechanisms behind globalisation and how the government can promote increased internationalisation of Swedish trade and industry. We are also observing a need for greater knowledge surrounding which role and tools the government has in order to make it easier for more companies to derive benefit from the process.
