In Focus


The effect of trade barriers on Swedish and EU exports of goods since 2008

Have Swedish exports of goods been held back due to trade barriers introduced since the financial crisis? According to a new report commissioned by the National Board of Trade Sweden and written by Professor Simon Evenett and Dr. Johannes Fritz of the University of St. Gallen, the answer is yes in relation to China but no in relation to the United States and Japan. Trade within the EU does not seem to have been affected much by trade barriers or trade distortions introduced globally since the financial crisis.
