Thinking of doing business in Finland

Along with its Scandinavian neighbours, Finland is ranked as one of the easiest countries in the world for doing business. It also tops international rankings when it comes to education, research and development investment, competitiveness and transparency. Meanwhile, its unique geographic location - at the crossroads between Europe, Russia and the Baltic States - offers enormous potential for international investors.

The opportunities:

  • Hub for technology and innovation
  • Established geographic and trade links with Europe, Russia and the Baltic States
  • Easy to do business and low levels of corruption
  • Foreign-owned companies can benefit from government investment incentives
  • Finland has been a member of the European Union since 1995 and is the only Nordic country to have adopted the euro.
