The trade surplus for Finland fell last year over the previous year, in spite of healthy growth in exports. The main reason was an increase in imports into the country. Exports for the full year rose mainly in the sectors of metals, chemicals and forest products. The value of imports was increased by higher prices for metals, enriched ores and crude oil. Finland imported more in value from Russia than from any other country, mainly because of the high demand for imported energy. The most important export desinations for Finland are Sweden, Germany and Russia.
