Sweden is a federal state located in Northern Europe, bordering the Baltic Sea, the Gulf of Bothnia, Finland, and Norway. The country covers an area of 449,964 square kilometers (173,732 square miles). The Swedish GDP growth rate was hampered by the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, which affected its overall performance during 2001-2012. Global GDP is expected to grow to $99.5 trillion by 2018, while Sweden’s economy is likely to grow $591 billion at the current price by 2018 with a slim CAGR of just 0.02% during 2013 to 2018.
