Text size Aa Aa

HELSINKI (Reuters) – Finland’s growth will likely slow down in the coming years, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said on Tuesday in its economic review of the northernmost eurozone member.

IMF forecast Finnish growth in 2018 to be 2.8 percent and 1.9 percent in 2019, compared to a growth of 2.8 percent in 2017.

It added that the country’s long term growth was likely to be lower than what has been seen in the past few years, and called for labour market reforms including more wage-setting at the company level.
