New bill on Swedish defence 2016-2020

On 24 April 2015 the Swedish Government presented its bill on the Swedish defence for the years 2016-2020. Emphasising the deteriorating security situation in Europe, the Government proposed a reinforcement of the defence economy with 10,2 billion Swedish crowns. It proposes amongst other things the establishment of a new battle group on the island Gotland, the reinstitution of the planning for a civil-military defence and a strengthening of the anti-submarine warfare capability.
