Finland In Double-Dip Recession

Recommended Posts


Finland's economy slipped back into recession during the first three months of 2010, official figures have shown.

During the January to March quarter its economy contracted by a seasonally-adjusted 0.4%, after a decline of 0.2% in October to December of last year.

Finland, whose main exports include paper and Nokia mobile phones, was hit hard by the downturn in global trade.

However, official figures also released on Thursday, showed that its exports have since recovered.

The country's exports rose 7% from a year earlier to 4.4bn euros ($5.3bn; £3.6bn) in April, the biggest growth since November 2008.

This resulted in Finland reporting a trade surplus of 355m euros, its first for six months.

A report last year by the World Economic Forum said Finland had the world's sixth most competitive economy.

Finland's economy had previously contracted for three quarters in row, covering the period from October 2008 to June 2009. The economy then grew in the third quarter of 2009.


Ding ding round 2 about to begin or is Finland the exception to the globally locked in recovery?

If some major economys follow then they all will, as they can say 'its a global problem'

Unfortunately Ali D isnt here anymore to say that Britain is the best set to weather the recession linger in recession longer than anyone else.
