Confidence Indicators almost Unchanged in April


Finnish manufacturing confidence was unchanged in April. The confidence indicator stayed at -7 points (revised figure -7 in March). Confidence is currently weaker than its long-term average (+2).

Production is expected to increase sligthly during late spring and summer but order books are clearly smaller than normal. Stocks of final goods are slightly above long-term normal.
