Swedish – Croatian trade has totaled € 418 million in 2023, of which Croatian exports to Sweden amounted to € 246 million, and Swedish export to Croatia to € 172 million.

In February 2024 Swedish company Elekta signed a significant deal with the Croatian Ministry of Health for the sale of 12 linear accelerators, an investment that amounted to € 32 million.
