Finnish government invests heavily in education , training and research and thus delivers one of the most quality workforce in the world.

On the external front, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990s had hit its exports badly. With the fall in prices, western sanctions related to the crisis in  Ukraine and Russia’s trade retaliation against the EU has further impacted the trade negotiations of Finland. Further, the wage rate is rising and the labour productivity is falling.

The level of smoking in Finland is lowest amongst all the European nations . Recently , the sale for cigarettes is falling regularly . The major factor is the regular rise in the price of cigarettes. Further, the campaign against smoking and the government commitment to fight the industry is showing success. The ban on the flavored cigarettes will also impact the industry as methanol cigarettes have a considerable share in the market.  As EU brings out its tobacco product directive , the industry is set to see more setbacks.
