Finland Likely to Pass Expanded Rescue Fund, Urpilainen Says

Finland’s parliament is likely to pass the expanded powers of Europe’s temporary rescue fund, Finance Minister Jutta Urpilainen said.

“It would show Finland in a very bad light if Finland rejected the measures used to counter the crisis,” she told reporters today, after giving a speech at a tax event hosted by the Chamber of Commerce in Helsinki. Passing the measures is the “responsible” thing to do, she said.
