Minister for Trade and Development Lenita Toivakka says that Finland’s exports start growing through internationalisation. In addition, cost competitiveness must be fixed. Therefore, Minister Toivakka thinks it is important that the social contract advances. According to the Minister, there is demand for Finnish knowhow abroad but there are not enough Finnish companies on the markets. She emphasises that services export, such as information technology knowhow and project construction, is not seen in the statistics. Finnish companies succeed with high quality, reputation and technology, but price is something that they struggle with, Ms Toivakka finds.
