The Swedish state is Sweden's largest company owner and employer. Fifty-seven companies/concerns are managed through the Government Offices, 43 of which are entirely state-owned, and 14 partially state-owned. A total of some 190 000 people are employed at these companies.
In the month of May, the annual administration report for state-owned enterprises is published. The aim is to highlight how the Government handles and develops ownership issues and to report on the overall economic development of the state-owned enterprises. In addition, quarterly reports are produced four times a year, to provide continuous monitoring of developments in the companies.
