It offers a sophisticated and established market with a long and trusted trading relationship with Scotland. Its educated and technologically advanced society is looking for high-quality products and services.

Finland is a wealthy Northern European nation bordering Sweden, Norway and Russia, with its capital, Helsinki, occupying a peninsula in the Baltic Sea. With an affluent and technologically sophisticated population, Finland already welcomes Scottish quality products, and the UK brands are immediately recognised.
