"The Swedish model”, an example of mixed economy encompassing Public-private partnership, is responsible for its sound economy though high unemployment was evident in 1990s.

The tranquil Scandinavian country of Sweden has many interesting places

parks. Stockholm, the capital, is known for its Museums and vibrant
nightlife. A visit to Uppsala is sine qua non for those interested in
