According to Statistics Finland’s revised preliminary data, the volume of Finland’s GDP grew by 4.2 per cent in 2007. Previously the growth was estimated to reach 4.5 per cent. Gross domestic product totalled EUR 180 billion.
The slight downward revision of the previously estimated growth rate of gross domestic product in 2007 was mainly caused by updates received to data describing agricultural, municipal and insurance activities. At the same time Statistics Finland was making minor revisions to national accounts data from 1994 onwards.
All demand items in the national economy went up in 2007. The volume of investments grew by 8.7 per cent, the fastest rate in the 2000s. Consumption went up steadily by 2.5 per cent. The volume of exports grew by 8.1 per cent and that of imports by 6.5 per cent.
