Growth Analysis assists the Government by analysing both the status and the consequences of policies currently being pursued. It also evaluates effects of previous growth policy initiatives that have been conducted. Furthermore, it is responsible for the production of official statistics in the areas of start-ups, bankruptcies and public composition, as well as international companies.
Growth Analysis’ work is consequently based on three areas of activity:
•Evaluations of growth policy initiatives.
•Analyses of driving forces and processes in Swedish trade and industry. We do this on the basis of aspects such as innovation capacity, business dynamics and regional development.
•Statistics. Support is provided through collection and production of statistics
Its commissions are designed in close dialogue with the clients in an analysis and evaluation plan every year. The knowledge bases that it submits to the Government are used in the work of formulating Sweden’s growth policy.
Based on the experiences gained from previous work and the issues the Agency deems most central for a sustainable growth policy, for the coming years they have decided to collect inputs within six thematic areas.
•Supply of capital and selective financial support for companies
•Production and dissemination of knowledge
