This analysis is a part of Growth Analysis's framework project "How can the state facilitate new and small enterprises to enter markets abroad?" The purpose of the analysis is to increase the understanding regarding how Sweden and comparable countries have chosen to organize their nation’s public export promotion efforts and what these have resulted in. The focus of the analysis is efforts aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The countries we compare are Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany. The study is a follow-up and extension of three analyses published by Growth Analysis in 2014–2015.
