The defence agreement between the government and the Centre Party, Moderates, and Christian Democrats in the spring resulted in an extra SEK 10.2 billion in funding for the Armed Forces over the next five years. Sveriges Radio reports that the Armed Forces now have presented their new organisation, based on the new funds and the security situation in the Baltic region. One of the more visible results of the re-organisation will be the recruitment of 1,200 new full-time employees. “A lot of the money will go to staff, basic and personal material, training and setting up new units”, said Mikael Frisell, head of the Armed Forces in Region Nord.
