The country has developed a modern, competitive economy, and is a world leader in telecommunications equipment. Main exports include telecoms equipment and engineering products, paper, pulp and lumber, glassware, stainless steel and ceramics. The economy has rebounded strongly on the back of sharply recovering exports, and unemployment has started to recede. Activity has continue to benefit from firm world trade growth, while renewed confidence and lower unemployment has been supporting the domestic demand, leading to robust investment and output growth in the years ahead. Remaining slack will nevertheless hold inflation down. The fiscal deficit is expected to exceed 3% of GDP during 2011, but is expected to shrink rapidly thereafter. Nevertheless, structural reforms to contain public spending and increase labor force participation, which remains low compared to Nordic peers, remain essential to support medium-term growth and fiscal sustainability.
