Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen (NCP) has, alongside other cabinet members representing the National Coalition, rejected the claim by Jan Vapaavuori (NCP), the Minister of Economic Affairs, that the composition of the Government is a disincentive to efficient decision-making. Vapaavuori suggested on Friday that the dallying is particularly harmful to companies, which, anxious over new tax hikes, are unable to plan appropriately for the future. The uncertainty, he emphasised, is poisonous to companies.
