The Budget Bill for 2014 contains forecasts for macroeconomic developments and public sector finance. The Swedish economy has clearly been affected by the global recession of recent years. Growth has slowed again and is expected to remain low this year and then gradually pick up.

The Government always presents forecasts for the Swedish economy and public finances in connection with the Spring Fiscal Policy Bill in April and the Budget Bill in September. These forecasts are normally updated a few times in between.
Government forecasts contain key indicators related to the requirements on fiscal policy contained in the fiscal policy framework.
