STOCKHOLM, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Sweden’s gross domestic product will shrink around 4.6% this year, the government said on Monday, outlining a budget bill that will pump around 105 billion crowns ($12.0 billion) into the economy to kick-start growth following the pandemic.
“Together we are going to work Sweden’s way out of the crisis and build a more sustainable society,” the minority coalition said in a statement.
Measures in the budget, including tax cuts for individuals and companies and more money for the welfare sector, were broadly known. ($1 = 8.7514 Swedish crowns) (Reporting by Simon Johnson; editing by Niklas Pollard)
