In its latest Economic Survey of Finland, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) assesses the economy, employment and the structure of taxation and social security, among other things. The Economic Survey was presented by OECD Deputy Secretary-General Mari Kiviniemi at the publication launch in Helsinki on Wednesday 28 February.

The Finnish economy will grow by 2.4 per cent in 2018 according to the forecast of the Ministry of Finance in its latest Economic Survey. The favourable trend in the economy means an increase in employment and slower growth in the state’s debt burden, but it will not eliminate the general government deficit.
The Budget Review summarizes the central elements of the proposal.
Finnish GDP is forecast to grow by 2.9 % in 2017, 2.1 % in 2018 and 1.8 % in 2019.
