Trade Balance in Finland
Finland - Trade Balance (Euros)The economy appeared to hold up well in the fourth quarter, after growth ticked up slightly in the third quarter due to a surge in inventories and despite falling private consumption, fixed investment and exports. The resilience in Q4 was particularly evident in the labor market as displayed by the unemployment rate in December, which fell to its lowest level since November 2008. Moreover, in November, the current account balance logged a surplus for the first time in over a year on a stronger merchandise trade balance. However, growth likely remained fragile as evidenced by November’s slowdown in economic activity growth, which was weighed on by softening services production.
