Towards the Ideal Business Location

What do 400 company leaders think of Finland’s business environment? What constructive actions do they expect from the government? 

Finland's future economic success depends on a healthy and welcoming business environment for foreign investment and Finnish multinationals alike. Now more than ever, international companies looking to invest outside of their home market have many options.

In this second FDI Barometer compiled by Amcham Finland and Business Finland, we reveal real-time factors that motivate foreign affiliate companies to choose Finland as a location for their business expansion, including drivers and barriers to investing in Finland before and after this pandemic era.

The direct impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on the Finnish economy is clear; the data shows that FDI is a crucial part of the well-being of our nation. This survey reveals that foreign-owned companies are planning to employ more personnel in the following years and invest in more R&D. In addition to these benefits, FDI also creates a positive indirect impact on the Finnish economy. One job creates at least two additional jobs, and one invested euro generates three additional euros in value.
