SAS Group: "Despite a sharp fall in the GDP of the Nordic countries in 2009, the Nordic economies appear to be emerging relatively quickly from the deepest financial crisis since the 1930s. Forecasts indicate that 2010 will be significantly stronger than 2009. However, uncertainty remains as to the strength of the global economic recovery,” Mats Jansson, President and CEO.
