Support in Finland for membership in the eurozone weakens further

Only 54 percent want to keep the euro, poll shows

Finland finds itself in a stubborn recession

Support in Finland for staying in the Eurozone has fallen to 54 percent in a recent survey, Reuters reported. 31 percent of citizens surveyed in the poll by public broadcaster YLE said they wanted the country to exit from the currency union. Asked whether Finland would do better outside the eurozone, 44 percent answered yes. The Finnish economy is in a stubborn recession partly due to elevated labor costs. The cep already highlighted last year in its Default Index the urgent need for action in the country.
