STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's economy grew robustly in the third quarter, defying worries that inflation and the war in Ukraine would hamper growth, preliminary figures from the Statistics Office showed on Friday.

Gross domestic product (GDP) expanded 0.7% from the previous three-month period and 2.6% from the year-earlier quarter.
