New Chairman and new member of the Council

13 June 2013

Lars Jonung will resign as Chairman of the Swedish Fiscal Policy Council on the 31st of August 2013.

- After three rewarding years as a member of the Fiscal Policy Council, of which two years as the Chairman, it is time to hand over this assignment to younger forces. The Council has found a well-functioning structure for operating, it has become established and it stands out as a role model internationally, says Lars Jonung.

New members of the Council are elected by the Government, following nominations from the Council. The Council has decided to nominate current Deputy Chairman John Hassler as the new Chairman and current member Eva Lindström as the new Deputy Chair. Professor Oskar Nordström Skans (Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy, IFAU, and Uppsala University) has been nominated as the new member of the Council.
