12/12/2012 - The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Sweden, to be published on Monday 17 December 2012, discusses the country’s resilience to the global economic crisis as well as its capacity to cope with further external shocks, notably those posed by the continuing crisis in the euro area. The study assesses policies to maintain robust growth and make the Swedish economy more stable and inclusive. It also proposes potential environmental, financial sector, labour market and taxation reforms.

The survey will be available to journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 2:00 p.m. Paris time for immediate release.
