Mundus News - Sweden's news for professionals

Some people say that it is just news, but we believe that news should be easily accessed and give the reader a quick overview of what is important. This is why we developed Mundus News, a Swedish news summary in English, for those who need to know what is going on in Sweden.

Our news is written for foreign professionals working in Sweden, who need to understand the diversity of views and opinion in Swedish society. It is for businesses, trade groups, embassies and NGOs who are looking for English-language coverage of Swedish news. The news is also useful for Swedes who need a concise summary of what’s going on in Sweden.
