In 2011, Sweden’s total cultivated land area was 2.6483 million hectares, accounting for 6% of the country’s land area, and the self-sufficiency rate of agricultural products was over 80%. All kinds of food produced could not only meet the needs of the country, but also be exported.

The self-sufficiency rate of agricultural products is over 80%.

Sweden is rich in forest resources, and forestry plays an important role in the national economy. In addition to the export of wood raw materials, Sweden has also established a large number of supporting deep processing industrial sectors, such as pulp, paper, furniture, and forest chemical industry, with the output and export volume ranking the top in the world. Among them, the export of coniferous tree products ranks second in the world, the export of pulp ranks third in the world, and the export of paper industry ranks fourth in the world. At the same time, the government pays attention to environmental protection, and the annual cutting amount does not exceed the natural growth amount, which makes the Swedish forest coverage rate stable for a long time.

Iron ore, forest and water power are three major resources in Sweden. As of 2014, Sweden’s proven iron ore reserves are 3.65 billion tons, making it the largest iron ore exporter in Europe. Uranium reserves range from 250000 to 300000 tons. The forest coverage rate is 54%, and the timber storage is 2.64 billion cubic meters. In the ordinary year, the available water resources are 2014 million kilowatts (176 billion KWH), 81% of which have been developed.
