Sweden exports more than import

Since the mid-1980's, Sweden has imported goods and services for a smaller value than what we have exported, something that is clearly visible in the diagram showing our exports and imports. This means that we earn more from exports than we pay for imports.

The difference contributes to the gross domestic product (GDP) increasing, and the Swedish economy growing. It is called that we have a positive current account balance.
