During 2003, Swedish exports to Central and South America were only 1,9% of the total Swedish exports; furthermore, Swedish imports during the same period to Central and South America were 1,1% of total Swedish imports. The figures show how Swedish trade with Latin American countries is very low. The only Latin American country that in 2003 made part of the main 30 Swedish trade partners was Mexico, in the 22nd position. Swedish exports to Mexico represented 0,7% of total Swedish Exports for the year.
The purpose of this thesis is to make an analysis of the problems that Swedish companies face when doing business with the Latin American region, and to explore the causes of the low exchange rates in the commercial relations between Sweden and Latin America.
