(Reuters) - Finland’s finance minister Matti Vanhanen said on Thursday that a weak investment outlook on key export markets will weigh on the economic recovery of the Nordic country, and saw the EU Commission’s 2.8% growth forecast for 2021 as ‘really worrying’.

“The outlook is clearly weakest among the eurozone countries,” Vanhanen told reporters after eurogroup meeting.
