Audit Office warns government

The government may well be underestimating the difficulties of finding jobs for refugees, which in turn could hurt economic policy, warns the Swedish National Audit Office (Riksrevisionen) in a new report.

The Audit Office also notes that since 2002 Swedish governments have constantly postponed the time point at which the budget surplus target is to be achieved. Just two of the last 15 budgets have been restrictive. There should have been more, if governments were serious about attaining the target, find the authors of the report.
