Finland stepped out of recession during the reporting year, although demand for Finnish exports has not recovered as expected. However, economic growth is expected to continue.



As a result of megatrends, the production structure will undergo major changes. Innovation, businesses and jobs are mainly created in urban environments where people and ideas meet.
