Finnish 2016 GDP growth revised up to 1.9 pct

    HELSINKI, July 13 (Reuters) - Finland's 2016 full-year gross
domestic product (GDP) growth has been revised upwards to 1.9
percent, from a March reading of 1.4 percent, preliminary data
from the Statistics Finland (SF) showed on Friday.
    The euro zone's northernmost member is returning to growth
after a decade of stagnation sparked among other things by the
decline of Nokia's            former phone business, rigid
labour markets and a recession in neighbouring Russia.
    According to the revised numbers, the economy was boosted
mainly by private consumption, which grew by 1.9 percent.
    Exports increased by 1.3 per cent in 2016.
