Finland's GDP grew in the first quarter by 1.2% compared with the previous quarter, when the rise was 0.9%, the revised data of the country's statistical office showed. The maximum economic growth in Finland for more than 7 years was facilitated by an increase in consumer spending, as well as increased activity in industry and construction. Compared to the same period last year, the Finnish economy increased by 3.1%, accelerating growth from 2.6% a quarter earlier. It is expected that this year the GDP of Finland will reach the pre-crisis peak, which was recorded in 2008.
