Transatlantic Economy
Barometer Study

Amcham Finland supports a diverse, prosperous, and resilient Finnish economy by promoting policies that encourage foreign direct investment (FDI), innovation and job creation. We ensure that policymakers understand the critical role that foreign affiliates and FDI play in Finland’s economy. We advocate for fair and equal treatment of foreign affiliates in Finland, and we are the voice of international business in Finland. We believe that transatlantic investment grows Finland’s economy and transatlantic trade boosts jobs and development on both sides of the Atlantic.

Amcham Finland co-sponsored Transatlantic Economy Report 2019, a comprehensive annual survey on the state of the transatlantic economy. The wide-ranging survey concludes that politics trumped the economy as a matter of public attention in 2018 and might do so in 2019.
