Finland’s public finances have gathered strength; the general government deficit has shrunk and the ratio of public debt to GDP has begun to contract. Yet determined efforts are still required to address the challenges to fiscal sustainability in the long term.
Global demand, improved competitiveness and favourable financing conditions will support growth. GDP growth forecasts for 2018–2020 stand at 2,9%, 2,2%, and 1,7%. Inflation will remain close to 1% over the years 2018–2019 before gathering pace and reaching 1.5% in 2020.
