Finnish Q2 GDP growth revised up to 0.4 pct Q/Q

    HELSINKI, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Finland's gross domestic
product (GDP) grew 0.4 percent in the second quarter of the year
compared to the previous quarter, revised data from Statistics
Finland showed on Friday.
    Initially, the office had indicated quarterly decline of
-0.5 percent.             
    From a year earlier, second-quarter GDP increased 3.0
percent, compared to the flash estimate of 1.6 percent growth.
    The Nordic member of the euro zone is recovering from a
decade-long stagnation sparked among other things by a decline
of Nokia's            former phone business and recession in
neighboring Russia.
