April 17 (Bloomberg) -- Europe has long-term economic growth challenges and needs expansionary fiscal and monetary policies, Swedish Finance Minister Anders Borg said.

“Europe has actually grown very, very slowly; we’re talking of below half a percentage point over the last six, seven years,” Borg said during an macroeconomic policy conference in Washington today. “Fundamentally, there is a growth problem in Europe that is not short-term.”

Borg also said that Sweden needs expansionary fiscal policy for reasons that include high unemployment.
