Trade Between Sweden and the Philippines

The Philippines is one of Asia's fastest growing economies and the forecast for the coming years is optimistic. In important rankings such as the "ease of doing business index", the Philippines is performing well.

Sweden’s export to the Philippines has increased over the last few years. About 40 Swedish companies are already present in the country.  More are expected to come in the next few years.

The Embassy of Sweden in Manila can act as the initial point of contact for Swedish companies and entrepreneurs looking to explore business opportunities in the Philippines and with the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Basic trade inquiries and requests for information regarding Philippine and Swedish products and the ADB will be answered by the Embassy.

More in-depth trade services such as individual consulting tasks and assignments are mainly rendered to Swedish companies by Business Sweden.
