Finland: Industrial production picks up after weak start to the year

April 8, 2011

In February, industrial output grew a working-day adjusted 5.1% over the same month last year, which represented an acceleration compared to the 4.4% increase observed in January. The improvement was underpinned by developments in the manufacturing sector, which expanded 6.2% (January: +5.7% year-on-year). A month-on-month comparison corroborates the improvement suggested by the annual figures, as industrial output grew 1.2% over the previous month in seasonally adjusted terms. In the same vein, the overall trend continues to improve, with annual average growth in industrial production jumping from 6.0% in January to 6.6%. In its latest outlook form December, the Central Bank projected GDP to grow 3.0% in 2011 and 2.5% in 2012.

  • 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.
