Swedish Auto Industry Brings More Jobs

From Gasgoo.com| May 22,2007

From 1993 to 2003, annual growth in GDP averaged 2.9 percent. During the same period, value added in the motor-vehicle industry12 rose by an average of more than 11 percent per year (see Diagram 83), and in 2003 the industry accounted for almost three percent of value added in the business sector. The direct contribution of the industry to annual GDP growth thus averaged nearly 0.3 percentage point. The variations between years, however, are considerable; in 1994 the motor-vehicle industry contributed 0.65 percentage point, whereas in 2001 the industry’s contribution was negative.
