Environment
Finland has done reasonably well in preserving its natural environment. The government is skilled at obtaining and compiling environmental data and translating that into effective environmental management policies.1 There is a low population density and the nature conservation is relatively easy to maintain.2 Finland adopted a National Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change in 2005 and revised it in 2013.3 Since then, the government and environmental groups have successfully added climate change adaptation to its mandates and implementation has overall been successful. Finland has also recently adapted a new climate change policy that will hopefully reduce the amount of emissions to 80% by the year 2050.4 The plan is to make it as energy and cost efficient and systematic.5 The Finnish government wants to ...See More emerge as a leader in the climate change adaptation community.6 Show Less

Finland has a highly industrialized, largely free-market economy with per capita output almost as high as that of Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Sweden. Trade is important with exports accounting for over one third of GDP in recent years. Finland is strongly competitive in manufacturing - principally the wood, metals, engineering, telecommunications, and electronics industries. Finland excels in high-tech exports such as mobile phones. Except for timber and several minerals, Finland depends on imports of raw materials, energy, and some components for manufactured goods. Because of the climate, agricultural development is limited to maintaining self-sufficiency in basic products. Forestry, an ...See More important export earner, provides a secondary occupation for the rural population. Finland had been one of the best performing economies within the EU in recent years and its banks and financial markets avoided the worst of global financial crisis. However, the world slowdown hit exports and domestic demand hard in 2009, with Finland experiencing one of the deepest contractions in the euro zone. A recovery of exports, domestic trade, and household consumption stimulated economic growth in 2010-11. The recession affected general government finances and the debt ratio, turning previously strong budget surpluses into deficits, but Finland has taken action to ensure it will meet EU deficit targets by 2013 and retains its triple-A credit rating. Finland's main challenge in 2013 will be to stimulate growth in the face of weak demand in EU export markets and government austerity measures meant to reduce its budget deficit. Longer-term, Finland must address a rapidly aging population and decreasing productivity that threaten competitiveness, fiscal sustainability, and economic growth. Show Less ;
