Swedish employers groups on Tuesday pulled out of negotiations over a key government youth unemployment package expected to create 30,000 jobs, but Finance Minister Anders Borg downplayed the development.

The government had hoped the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv) and the Swedish Trade Union Organization (LO) could forge an agreement to create a package aimed at fighting the high employment rate among Sweden's youth.
