The current positive momentum in the global economy is slowly starting to be reflected in the country's economy.
 
Despite the momentum, a fragile economic growth in the country is predicted for the current as well as next year, according to the economic outlook by Danske Bank economists.
 
The improvement in the global economy is seen in the rise of industrial orders, according to Pasi Kuoppamäki, the chief economist at the Danske Bank.
 
The depreciation of the euro is expected to support the economic growth this year, and the net export will in turn raise the gross national product. The effects of the Russian economy will also be minimal in 2016, Kuoppamäki said.

The weak economic outlook will weigh heavily on consumers' caution, lack of investments and cuts in public sector.
 
However, the country would have witnessed economic growth had the Russian economy not been clumped.
 
The economists expect the economic situation to create substantial pressure on the incoming government regarding its fiscal policy and the need for structural reforms.
