Finland can help companies to become global game-changers in the data economy if we are able to provide them with an environment that encourages innovation.
Finland still has an image of a dark, cold country next to Russia with a very difficult language. We should market Finland as a high tech country with well-educated workforce.
It is crucial to have predictable business environment – so please finalize the SOTE reform without any delay.
We should provide attractive landing platforms also for smaller companies who want to invest in Finland.
Finland should offer welcome packages for the workers who come to Finland with the global companies – schools for kids, work opportunities for spouses.
Finland should enable foreign business ID to act as an employer to create proof-of-concept for future investments.
Finland should focus on taking care of the existing foreign owned companies in the country. Best way to get more sales is to take care of your existing customers.
Finland and especially the capital region should invest more in global visibility. It’s hard to sell, when people don’t know you exist
To attract Chinese companies and investors, story telling with strong ambition is critical.
IS FINLAND ATTRACTIVE MATCH FOR GLOBAL COMPANIES?
Why foreign-owned companies are important to Finland? What makes Finland attractive in the eyes of global companies? What would make us even hotter?
