Sweden: Economic sentiment deteriorates in December

The drop in December was driven by deteriorating indicators for the manufacturing and construction sub-sectors. Meanwhile, the consumer confidence sub-indicator rose to 92.3 in December from 88.6 in November, while the business confidence sub-indicator dropped to 92.6 in December from 94.6 in the prior month.
