In Sweden's Export Strategy 2015-2020, CCIs are identified as a specific development area, and several initiatives have taken place. A comparative study, Exportera kreativitet (Exporting Creativity), was produced that studied how a number of other countries have worked with policy tools for exporting CCIs at national level. The purpose was to analyse how Sweden can increase internationalisation within CCIs and promote culture-driven exports. In collaboration with the Swedish Agency for Cultural Policy Analysis, the Swedish Agency for Growth Policy Analysis, the Swedish Arts Council and Statistics Sweden, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth has produced the Kreametern statistical database to enable statistical economic analysis of CCIs. Team Sweden CCI has been established and is a working method launched to coordinate and improve the various forms of support available to Swedish companies to establish themselves in an international market. In 2017, the Swedish Institute was tasked with establishing and awarding a Government export prize in the field of CCIs.
