Unemployment in Finland

Finland Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Finland - Unemployment

Annual economic growth accelerated in the fourth quarter of last year. According to monthly economic activity data released by Statistics Finland, the economy was boosted by stronger expansions of primary, secondary and tertiary production. The pick-up in economic activity, in turn, translated into a tighter labor market, with the unemployment rate in December falling to the lowest level since November 2008. Meanwhile, the current account balance improved in Q4 compared to the previous quarter, although it deteriorated in annual terms. Turning to 2019, the recent tightening of the labor market and improved business and consumer confidence in January suggests the economy could fare well in Q1.
