Welcome to the National Board of Trade

The National Board of Trade is the Swedish governmental agency responsible for issues relating to foreign trade, the Internal Market and trade policy. Our mission is to promote an open and free trade with transparent rules. 

In Focus


Cross-border movement benefits Swedish export

Immigrant employees entail an increase of the Swedish export to their native countries. Swedish export would therefore be further benefited by visa and work permit rules being simplified. This is the conclusion of a new report by the National Board of Trade.

Visas and work permits as restrictions to trade

In the modern trading economy, people need to move across borders, just like goods, services and capital do. Bureaucratic and lengthy procedures for visas and work permits can increase trade costs in companies, delay their deliveries, and cause loss of contracts or clients. These effects are further explored in a new report from National Board of Trade: Trade Costs of Visas and Work Permits.

No Production without Data Transfers

Effective production of goods relies on moving data from a to b. This is especially true when production is spread out in various countries, in so called global value chains. Data protection regulation can therefore become cumbersome for manufacturers and affect their possibilities to stay competitive negatively. This shows the report No Transfer, No Production by the National Board of Trade.
