1/2/2017 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of Sweden, to be published on Wednesday 8 February, analyses the factors behind the country’s economic expansion, as well as steps that can be taken to ensure the continuation of inclusive, sustainable and green growth in the future. The Survey discusses how comprehensive housing market reform and better integration of immigrants could raise long-term growth and strengthen social cohesion. It also assesses how Sweden could foster more inclusive growth through policies promoting income and gender equality.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 12:00 GMT for immediate release. Create your MyOECD account here.
