“Our welfare system is the backbone of the Swedish model, playing a crucial role in people’s security throughout their lives. Smart, robust common systems for welfare, redistribution and financial security at different stages of life ensure that we build a society that not only stands together – but that also enables people to grow and take chances. I want to strengthen this security and invest in welfare and people.”
