Welcome to the Board of Swedish Industry and Commerce for Better Regulation’s (NNR) webinar on Governance and Better Regulation and the Swedish results of the OECD’s third survey – Regulatory Policy Outlook 2021.
At the webinar, the following will be discussed:
- The Swedish results from the OECD’s survey.
- A new study on the effects of regulatory burdens on growth and employment will shed light on the importance of better regulation not only to Swedish businesses but also to the Swedish economy and society as a whole.
We also get to learn more about:
- The importance of International Regulatory Co-operation to meet transboundary challenges and retain competitiveness.

The aim is to highlight and discuss measures that need to be implemented and new paths that can be explored to achieve an improved regulatory process and intensified work on better regulation in Sweden.
