The Swedish government should strive for balance if it chooses to makes changes to the central bank law, Sveriges Riksbank deputy governor Cecilia Skingsley said today (September 13).

Skingsley saw a tension between the need for a "clear mission and mandate" on the one hand, and allowing the central bank to perform its tasks "independently and flexibly" on the other, speaking at a conference marking the 200th anniversary of the National Bank of Austria.
