Production growth continues strong
Production growth in the Helsinki Region continued strong in the second quarter of the year. Compared to the same period last year, production in the region was more than 3 per cent higher between April and June. Production in the entire country grew somewhat less. The economy in the Helsinki region has grown by more than 2.5 per cent in each quarter for almost three years. Business operations grew heavily in the second quarter of the year in almost all industries. Price increases shrunk production’s real growth in the region somewhat. Of the central industries in the Helsinki region, the economy grew substantially in secondary production (industry and construction) and most service sectors. In the service sector, business operations grew notably fast in accommodation and food service sectors, business services, financing, transport and storage.
