The Global Business Climate Survey 2022
A considerable majority of Swedish companies operating overseas are profitable and more than half have their sights set on new investments. These are just two findings in the Global Business Climate Survey for this year, which captures the inside perspectives of Swedish decision-makers in 22 markets.
More than 1,600 Swedish companies took part in this year’s survey and shared first-hand insights into the success factors and challenges they face when doing business abroad.
Overall, the consensus was clear: the business climate overseas is improving. 60 per cent of companies believe that amplifying their Swedish identity benefits their performance abroad, and 40 per cent of companies say that customers consider environmental sustainability to a “high or very high degree” – up four points from last year.
The Global Business Climate Survey is jointly produced by Business Sweden, the Swedish Chambers of Commerce (SCI), and Sweden’s embassies and consulates and covers 22 markets in Western Europe, APAC, MEA+, and the Americas.
The survey was first carried out in 2020 and captures the viewpoints, experiences and insights of Swedish business leaders overseas. In total, more than 1,600 C-level representatives of Swedish companies abroad responded to the survey and answered 18 standard questions on the business climate in their main markets. The responses from the various regions are weighted in the survey results.
