INCREASE IN EXPORTS TO AFRICA

Swedish small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have almost doubled their exports to sub-Saharan Africa in the past decade, according to Statistics Sweden. Examples include medical technology firm Boule Diagnostics, which sells blood analysis equipment to a number of African countries, and Eltel, which is upgrading the electricity networks in Botswana and Zambia. Staffan Arbring of Business Sweden says there are risks involved, often to do with corruption, long payment times and volatile currencies.  (ICE STOCCOLMA)
