Minister Kai Mykkänen is not afraid that Finns’ jobs will disappear to China – « as an open economy we will do what we are best at »

Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen believes that the rise in the standard of living in Finland would not have been possible without foreign investments. Mr Mykkänen believes that promoting free trade can bring Finland plenty of new business opportunities. The minister is not concerned that the increase of Chinese investments in Finland would result in Finnish jobs disappearing abroad but believes that behind the investment boom is China’s need to control overheating in its own economy. Mr Mykkänen points out that international trade requires commitment to the same basic rights but admits that China is a challenging country when it comes to e.g. getting it to comply to the international basic rights of workers.
