This Survey is published on the responsibility of the Economic and Development Review Committee (EDRC) of the OECD, which is charged with the examination of the economic situation of member countries.

The economic situation and policies of Sweden were reviewed by the Committee on 11 February 2019. The draft report was then revised in the light of the discussions and given final approval as the agreed report of the whole Committee on 1 March 2019.

The Secretariat’s draft report was prepared for the Committee by Christophe André, Jon Kristian Pareliusen and Hyunjeong Hwang, with contributions from Andres Fuentes Hutfilter, under the supervision of Vincent Koen. Secretarial assistance was provided by Sisse Nielsen.

The previous Survey of Sweden was issued in February 2017.
