Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen believes that the biggest risk from the viewpoint of Finland’s economic recovery is the threat of a trade war. « We cannot afford to get stuck in protectionism, » he adds. Particularly a trade war between the US and China could paralyse world economy. Regardless of the hard talk between the US and China, Mr Mykkänen believes that the countries are able to settle their disputes. Protectionism also poses a risk to the world economic growth.
