Economic relations between Sweden and Israel are in a positive stage of development. Trade figures are up again and we see a clear increase in the numbers of business-related visits and inquires.
The Swedish Government actively promotes such contacts. Lately Israel has received several delegations from Sweden with businessmen and senior officials to develop co-operation in a wide range of fields, including hi-tech, IT, telecommunications, biotech, environmental technology, infrastructure and consumer goods.
We want to develop trade – in both directions – as well as co-operation between Swedish and Israeli business in product development and research. We want not only to encourage Swedish business to discover new opportunities in Israeli, but also to invite Israeli business to Sweden.
Sweden's economy is highly competitive, internationalized and known for innovation, creativity and design. Our economy is open. It is the obvious gateway to the wider Baltic region and Northern Europe. Israeli businessmen will in Sweden find an exciting and rapidly advancing market, with strong political, economical and legal stability, transparent regulations and a very welcoming approach to international partners.
