Sweden’s approach to China’s Belt and Road Initiative
This UI Paper outlines how China has approached the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) with Sweden, how Sweden has responded and the perceptions of major Swedish stakeholders.
The UI Paper concludes that Swedish officials are often highly cautious, maintaining a wait-and see policy. While also cautious, members of the business community are cautiously optimistic and have been more actively following BRI-related developments, seeking out avenues for potential business. The actual impact of BRI in Sweden, however, is so far very limited.
