Finland: August industrial production recovers

October 10, 2011

In August, industrial output rose a working-day adjusted 2.4% over the same month last year, which contrasted the 0.5% drop in July (previously reported: +1.3% year-on-year) and represented the strongest reading in three months. The improvement was underpinned by a rebound in mining and quarrying, which swung from a 19.7% contraction in July to a 17.2% increase in August. Moreover, manufacturing output increased 3.3%, which was up from the 2.6% expansion recorded in July. A month-on-month analysis confirms the rebound suggested by the annual figures, as industrial production rose in August a seasonally adjusted 2.1% over the previous month, which contrasted the 0.4% contraction observed in July and represented its strongest pace since June last year. Despite the strong reading, the trend continues to moderate, with annual average growth in industrial production falling from 5.9% in July to 5.6% in August.

  • Finland: Current account deficit widens to a multi-decade high

    June 14, 2019

    The current account balance slumped to a EUR 4.2 billion deficit in April, deteriorating from March’s revised EUR 0.24 billion shortfall (previously reported: EUR 0.47 billion deficit) and representing the lowest reading since contemporary records began in January 2006. The main reason for April’s slump was a massive downturn in the primary income account balance, which was itself caused by a strong increase in investment income debits on the back of international company restructurings at the end of last year. In the 12 months leading up to April, the current account balance totaled a EUR 5.3 billion deficit, representing a deterioration from the EUR 1.9 billion shortfall in March. The trade balance fell to a EUR 0.2 billion deficit in April, contrasting the EUR 0.2 billion surplus in March.
