Finland must remain patient in addressing its growing public debt, emphasises Angel Gurriá, the Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). “I'm not saying you shouldn't be worried about the growing debt. However, Finland should be proud that its debt ratio is only 60 per cent. Finland has the leeway and time to balance its public economy, and this flexibility should be taken into account,” Gurriá views in an interview with Helsingin Sanomat.
