Finland - Out of the Economic Woods?

Many challenges lie ahead for the small nation of Finland, that has only just emerging from a long recession.

Exports will recover amid better competitiveness and higher external demand." It went on to note that an ageing population is one of the headwinds for a fuller long term recovery.
