Sweden’s tourism has been growing steadily over the past ten years and is today an important sector for the growth of enterprise and jobs, as well as the expansion of local economies in the country. The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket) reported an increase of 7.5% in tourism’s export value in 2012, measured as foreign visitors’ consumption in Sweden, to SEK 106.5 billion – almost 85% more than iron and steel exports and almost three times more than the value of Swedish car exports.
