Immigration and international trade : A study on the impact of immigration on Swedish trade in goods abroad (English)
Abstract [en]

The immigration to Sweden has increased and that gets economic consequences

– both negative and positive. The ambition of this paper is to answer whether

Swedish trade in goods is affected by the relative large immigration to Sweden.

The panel data that is studied is Swedish trade in goods with 50 different

countries between 2000-2017. Several papers has studied similar problems but

attacked the problem in different ways and with different data. This paper uses

the gravity model’s basic ideas and then we modify the model with different

variables, including immigration stock. This paper finds that immigration have a

positive effect on trade in goods. The import tends to have a stronger effect than

exports, which may be explained by the theory that exports effect is stronger

after several years later. The theory that exports have the strongest effects

several years after imports is supported by earlier studies.

Abstract [sv]

Invandringen till Sverige har ökat och det får ekonomiska konsekvenser – både

negativa och positiva. Målet med detta arbete är att besvara huruvida svensk

varuhandel påverkas av den relativt höga invandringen till Sverige. Den

paneldata som studeras är svensk handel med 50 olika länder mellan åren 2000-

2017. Flera tidigare studier har snuddat vid ämnet men angripit problemet på

olika sätt och med olika data. Här angrips problemet genom att studera

gravitationsmodellens grundmodell och sedan modifiera den med olika variabler

som antas påverka handeln, däribland invandringen. Studien finner att

invandringen har en positiv påverkan på varuhandeln. Importen tycks påverkas

starkast, vilket kan förklaras av att exporten påverkar längre fram i tiden. Att

exporten påverkas senare än importen stöds av tidigare studier.
