Key developments and challenges

  • Following a change in administration at the end of 2012, the authorities have placed a strong emphasis on social policies and reducing income inequality.
  • A mid-sized domestic bank, Ukio Banka, failed in February 2013. While financial and macroeconomic stability was not jeopardised, this corporate failure once again highlighted the need for far more stringent regulation and supervision of the remaining domestically owned banks.
  • Voters rejected plans for the construction of a nuclear power plant. The plant would have served the Baltic region but, although the referendum of October 2012 was non-binding, the result is likely to be followed by the new government.
