Countries and regions

Sweden's development is closely linked with that of other countries. Membership of the European Union and the rapid globalisation of the economy and information technology increase Sweden's dependence on the surrounding world but also its opportunities to influence international development.

Sweden has a long tradition of an active foreign policy, with extensive and close bilateral and multilateral cooperation, both in our part of the world and globally. You can read more about Sweden's cooperation with the surrounding world here.
