Policy Issues

FDI


Foreign affiliates and foreign direct investment (FDI) spur job growth and bring long-term benefits to the Finnish economy.

DIGITAL


60% of global GDP will be digitized by the end of 2021, yet Finland’s digital competitiveness is increasingly fragile. Finland has the capacity to stay ahead of the curve and become a global digital leader through proactive government leadership in digital transformation and routine multi-stakeholder meetings with leading industry voices.

TALENT


Ensuring availability of talent is essential to attract FDI and promote Finland as a center of excellence for innovation. To foster this, we believe that Finland should streamline its immigration process for skilled migrants, allow for greater flexibility in the labor market, and invest in upskilling the domestic workforce.

FDI


Kansainväliset yhtiöt ja ulkomaiset suorat investoinnit luovat työpaikkoja ja tuovat pitkäaikaisia hyötyjä suomalaiselle taloudelle.

DIGITAL


60% maailmanlaajuisesta BKT:stä on digitaalista vuoden 2021 loppuun mennessä. Suomen digitaalinen kilpailukykyisyys on tähän nähden hauras, mutta sillä on yhä mahdollisuus kehittyä digitalisaation edelläkävijäksi. Valtiolta tämä vaatii proaktiivista johtamista sekä säännöllistä yhteistyötä eri sidosryhmien ja alan asiantuntijoiden kanssa.

TALENT


Suomi voi vetää puoleensa ulkomaisia investointeja ja edistää omaa asemaansa innovaation keskuksena varmistamalla osaamisen saatavuuden. Saavuttaakseen tämän, Suomen tulee selkeyttää ulkomaisen työvoiman lupakäytäntöjä, luoda työmarkkinoille lisää joustavuutta ja investoida paikalliseen täydennyskoulutukseen.
