The Dutch market has always been very important to Swedish Companies and continues to be so. The Netherlands is Sweden’s seventh-largest export market and third-largest import market at SEK 162 billion in total 2021.
The Netherlands is an attractive market for Swedish companies with its logistically strategic location and high degree of digitalisation, technology, innovation, and sustainability. The Netherlands is also an interesting test market for onward expansion to other countries in Europe. The Dutch business climate bears clear resemblances to that of Sweden. Swedish companies and products enjoy a great reputation for innovation, tech, quality, as well as sustainability, among consumers.
Team Sweden in the Netherlands (the Embassy of Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, and Business Sweden) have conducted the second Business Climate Survey among Swedish companies in the Netherlands. The findings are presented in this report. This survey was carried out between March and April 2022. The ongoing Russian aggression on Ukraine is likely to have influenced the answers.
The Swedish Chamber is currently working with the Business Climate Survey for 2023.
