Finland Country Risk Report Q3 2016 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri May 13 2016

Finland's economic malaise has much further to run, with the economy set to expand at the slowest rate in the EU in 2017.

We forecast real GDP growth to come in at just 0.4% in 2016 and 0.7% the following year. This suggests that the country will slide further behind regional peers Norway, Sweden and Denmark, and will be the slowest expanding EU economy in 2017

Reforms aimed at tackling Finland's uncompetitive labour market will be insufficient to solve severe structural inefficiencies in the economy.

Finland's coalition government will struggle to retain popular support in 2016 and 2017, due to the likely implementation of controversial labour market reforms.

While support for exiting the euro will grow, we remain sceptical that momentum behind a so called ""Fixit"" will be strong enough to force a vote on the issue.
