Swedish military exports increased by 2 percent in value last year, much of the increase due export of fighter jets to Brazil. But critics are concerned that Sweden continues to export to non-democratic states.
Swedish exports of military equipment were worth 11.3 billion kronor ($1.38 billion) in 2017, up 2 percent from the year before, a new report from the Swedish Inspectorate of Strategic Products (ISP) shows.
Over 80 percent of the 11.3 billion kronor came from exports to other EU or EEA countries, Canada, South Korea, the US and Brazil. Brazil, India and the US are the top three importers.
