Finland as a Business Location
With a stable and predictable operating environment, as well as a strong credit ranking, Finland is a good choice for international companies. It is a part of the European Union, the Eurozone and the Schengen Area.
Conveniently located between East and West – and with extensive fast flight connections – Finland offers a fantastic opportunity for international businesses to set up operations. It is an ideal gateway to Russia by rail that extends to St. Petersburg and beyond. Some of the fastest flight routes connect Finland to major Asian cities, such as Tokyo, Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai and Hong Kong – to name only a few.
