Summary:

Sweden’s economy continues to perform well, yet wage rises and inflation remain low. Growth of just over 3 percent is expected in 2017, with job creation running at over 2 percent, and underlying inflation around 1.3 percent. The outlook is for further solid growth in coming years, yet, even as employment rates reach EU highs, business sector wage rises are only 2.2 percent, posing downside risks to an expected inflation pick up.
