Recovery around the world is going slowly, which in turn means slow recovery in the Swedish economy. Public finances are not expected to reach surplus during the forecast period. This is shown by the Ministry of Finance's most recent forecast, which was presented by Minister for Finance Magdalena Andersson today.
The Budget Bill for 2015 contains forecasts for macroeconomic developments and the public sector finances.
About the forecasts
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.
