Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä says the result of the French presidential election is good news for the EU and also for Finland. According to Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini, the election results leaves no room for second guessing. He does not expect the result to bring changes to the already good relations between Finland and France but believes that the continuation of co-operation between France and Germany in Europe could increase stability and predictability and thus be positive for Finnish economic growth. Also President Sauli Niinistö sees Emmanuel Macron’s election as good news for Europe and states that Mr Macron’s election also means increasing integration which benefits Finland.
