Sweden is a member of the EU’s Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO). Together with France, it coordinates the PESCO project on EU Test and Evaluation Centres. Sweden’s policy community would likely endorse Macron’s statement that Europe needs "an autonomous and competitive industrial defense base, resolute and massive innovation efforts, control of our security technologies and control of our defense exports." This plays to Swedish industrial strengths.
