Column: Uncertainty holds investments back
"Investments seem to be in a self-feeding negative spiral. Uncertainty decreases companies’ willingness to invest, but at the same time, we need investments to be able to react to future challenges and reduce uncertainty.."
"As for the government’s economic policy, we can hope for incentives to spur investments, but the final decisions are made in individual companies. Do we have the courage to invest in the face of uncertainty? Without them, we won’t be able to solve our problems", says Economist Olli Kärkkäinen from Nordea.
Theme 2019: Sustainable Manufacturing
Research shows that Finnish industry is one of the cleanest in the world and it is an environmental act to produce in Finland. And Finland can and should be a pioneer in sustainable manufacturing innovations and export.
Subcontracting 2019 highlights the importance of sustainable manufacturing.
