Current Account in Sweden
Sweden - Current AccountThe economy should be recovering notable traction in the second quarter, following Q1’s setback. Underlying momentum slowed in Q1, as mounting price pressures and uncertainty weighed on consumer sentiment, and on spending in turn. Available data points to a brighter picture in the second quarter. In April, the unemployment rate remained at the joint-lowest level since March 2020, which should have supported private spending as the highest inflation rates in over three decades weighed on consumers. Further, both business confidence and economic sentiment were upbeat in the same month. Additionally, both the manufacturing and services PMIs revealed that conditions continued to improve at robust paces in April. On 18 May, Swedish and Finnish authorities submitted official applications to join NATO, abandoning long traditions of neutrality. Turkey could block their bids, however.
