Nordic webinar - October 2021 - bannerSweden: Growth seen at 4.1% in 2021 and 3.2% in 2022, with near-term risks rising

  • The job recovery continues at a steady pace.
  • Headline CPI inflation jumped to 2.5% y/y in September from 2.1% in August, in line with our forecast, driven by electricity prices that were up almost 25% y/y.
