Executive summary

Finland enjoys a high level of income and well-being. Nevertheless, output has been dragged down by the global downturn, the decline of the electronics and paper industries and the Russian recession. Unemployment is rising rapidly, but social safety nets keep income inequality low. The general government deficit is above 3% of GDP and gross debt will rise above 60% of GDP in 2015. The government has an ambitious programme to restore competitiveness and fiscal sustainability through budgetary measures and structural reforms.
