Sweden enjoyed a very strong recovery through mid-2011, but is now being hit by the ongoing global economic slowdown. The pace of job creation is set to slow and the decline in unemployment to pause. Private consumption, which has been one of the main drivers of growth, should moderate. As world trade regains strength from mid-2012, Sweden’s economic momentum is projected to pick up. Spare capacity will increase in the near term, hence core inflation should stay subdued.
