Finland has redefined itself from a quiet agricultural based economy to a trend setting, global center for technology and design. The country is highly integrated into the global economy with international trade accounting for a third of its GDP. Finland’s commercial clout far exceeds its modest population of 5.5 million and offers great opportunities for U.S. trade and investment. The country routinely ranks at the very top of international surveys on education, quality of life, competitiveness, and transparency. It sits at the epicenter of Europe’s “New North” – a unique intersection of geography, infrastructure, education, good governance, and high-technology industries. Whether you are new to exporting or are already expanding to new markets, our Embassy team offers a full range of expertise in international trade and investment, including programs and services to promote and protect American trade and investment interests in Finland, as well as programs and services for Finnish investors looking to set up or grow their business in the United States.
