Sweden and the UK don’t appear to do much trading and, to use the UK government’s own words, it is “working to improve the UK’s reputation as a place to do business, to broker commercial partnerships and to increase Sweden’s inward investment in UK companies and projects”
This means working more closely with Sweden to improve business links as well as working to improve the European economy.
So it looks like Sweden could be a tough nut to crack.
If you’ve a research and development (R&D) company though, it could be well worth the effort as Sweden is Sweden is a world leader in investment in this area and spends around 3% of its annual GDP.
And if you do business out there, or you’re looking to do business out there, you’ll be aware Sweden is out of the eurozone and the currency there is the Swedish krona (1 GBP = 11.82 SEK).

What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Sweden?
Almost a million British travelers make the short trip to Sweden each year, and you can expect to have a trouble free visit as crime is relatively low. You should remain vigilant of petty crime, particularly pick pockets in the major cities. If you’re travelling to Malmö or Gothenburg, be aware that instances of gang related crime, including shootings and explosions, have been reported.
And , hard as it may to believe, you need to be aware of potential terrorist threats, as there is a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria.
The country is used to dealing with bad weather, and so roads and railways can function relatively well in poor conditions, but you should allow more time fro travel when conditions are severe, and there will likely be delays to trains and flights.

What’s the best time to call Sweden from the UK?
Stockholm is just 1,200 miles and a two-and-a-half hour flight from London, travelling out there regularly is neither practical nor cost-effective – and as Sweden is just one hour ahead of the UK, which means it’s perfect for doing business via conference call.
