Economic policy – Budget, the EU

Government economic policy is prepared and implemented by the Ministry of Finance. The goal is to promote sustainable economic growth that improves employment, and to reduce central government debt. Preparing economic policy requires monitoring, analysing and projecting the development of the economy. Information on the state of the economy and its future outlook is provided in regularly published publications and reviews.

By participating in the work of the Economic and Financial Committee and the Economic Policy Committee of the EU, for Finland's part the Ministry prepares the coordination of EU economic policy and the economic policy in the euro area.
