Finland - Fiscal Balance

Finland likely recorded a slower economic expansion in the first quarter of this year. Annual economic growth moderated in February from January due to weaker momentum in both services and primary production. More positively, public finance data released in April showed the government’s fiscal deficit fell last year and represented the best fiscal reading since the 2008 financial crisis. Moreover, public debt as a percentage of GDP fell below 60% for the first time since 2013. Meanwhile, in the political arena, the Social Democrats narrowly came out on top in the 14 April general election, while the outgoing Centre Party, which generally favors less government spending than the Social Democrats, slumped to fourth place. As the election winners, the Social Democrats officially began coalition-building talks on 25 April.
