Finland – a natural gateway of commerce

Strategically positioned for business success

Why Finland?

Located at the crossroads of Europe, Russia and the Baltic States, Finland capitalises on its unique position as a natural gateway of commerce. In recent years, the number of Russian companies choosing to establish operations in their stable and transparent Nordic neighbour has increased, while international investors see Finland as a safe springboard into the often challenging Russian market. Meanwhile, more than a third of overland shipments from the EU to Russia travel via Finland. As well as all of this, Finland’s reputation as an innovative hub for technology, research and development makes it an attractive destination for business investment.
