About Sweden Economy

In the south of Sweden farmers grow cereals, potatoes and sugar beet, and rear cattle and pigs. The Swedes exploit the northern forests for their timber. They can export timber products indefinitely because they have managed the forests well and not destroyed them with uncontrolled cutting. They mine iron inside the Arctic Circle. They established the first mines in the 1890s, and the high salaries attracted workers to move to this inhospitable region. But they have recently had to close many mines because of a fall in demand. Competition from developing countries has damaged the once prosperous steel and shipbuilding industries, but industrialists manufacture a variety of profitable goods, including aircraft, cars, domestic equipment and textiles.
